In 2008, the Alaska Legislature passed HB 152 which established an energy fund for renewable projects across the state. Since then, the program has gone through four rounds of grant applications and issued grants for more than 200 renewable energy projects across the state. With an emphasis towards issuing grants for those who see the highest energy costs, these grants have had a significant impact in the cost of energy for many small communities who otherwise would be totally dependent on diesel fuel.
