Varies, depending on energy efficiency improvements made
Under the Home Energy Rebate Program, homeowners who want to make their own energy efficiency improvements on their home can receive a rebate for some of their expenditures. The program requires a home energy rater to evaluate homes before and after the improvements. Rebates are dependent on the relative amount of efficiency gained and the actual cost of improvements, when the eligible improvements are selected by the homeowner from the energy rating’s improvement options list. The Home Energy Rebate Program provides rebates up to $10,000 to homeowners who make energy efficiency improvements to an existing home. In addition, the rebate program provides a $7,500 rebate for qualified, new, 5 Star Plus homes.
To participate in the program, the homeowner can either sign up for an energy rating by contacting the Alaska Rebate Call Center at 1-877-AK-REBATE or the homeowner can sign up on the [http://www.akrebate.com Alaska Rebate web site]. Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) will reimburse the homeowner up to $325 for the cost of the first rating and up to $175 for the post-improvement rating.
Extensive information on the program, including “The Home Energy Rebate Program Consumer Guide”, is available on the AHFC website.
