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. The Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) also offers a New Home Rebate for qualified newly constructed homes.
Homeowners may not claim this rebate if they have received incentives from the state Weatherization Program, a Home Energy Rebate on the current home, or a Home Energy Rebate on another home in the last two years. Extensive information on the program, including “The Home Energy Rebate Program Consumer Guide”, is available on the AHFC website.
