Alaska Housing Finance Corporation Expands Home Energy Rebate Program to make more Alaskans eligible for second rebates up to $10,000
January 14, 2013
Alaska Housing Finance Corporation: Alaska homeowners who used the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation Home Energy Rebate Program or 5 Star Plus New Home Rebate Program and have since built or purchased a new or existing home are eligible for a new rebate.
The program change is implemented starting today. Alaskans interested or wanting to sign up for either program should contact the AHFC Rebate Call Center at 1-877-257-3228 or go to www.akrebate.com.
The Home Energy Rebate Program focuses on energy efficiency upgrades with up to a $10,000 rebate available to homeowners thanks to generous funding supported by the Alaska Legislature and Governor Sean Parnell since 2008. The 5 Star Plus, Alaska’s highest energy efficiency rating, New Home Rebate Program differs slightly, providing a $7,500 rebate for new home construction. Both programs encourage homeowners to construct, purchase or retrofit homes that are energy efficient, saving homeowners across the state an average of 33 percent after completion.
