Commercial Building Energy Audit Program

AEA has extended the open application period for the USDA-funded Commercial Building Energy Audit program for commercially owned buildings located in rural Alaska, i.e., outside of the Municipality of Anchorage. Please refer to the Request for Applications and submit the application form by September 30, 2018.

Nonresidential buildings consume more than half the building energy use in Alaska, and the majority of these buildings are privately owned. The Commercial Building Energy Audit program will pay up to 75% of the cost of an ASHRAE level 1+ energy audit performed on privately owned commercial buildings. The audit cost is set by the building size and ranges from $600 for buildings up to 3,000 square feet up to $2,100 for buildings over 20,000 square feet.

Results of past similar programs indicate average energy savings of roughly 1/3 resulting from economic efficiency investments with average simple paybacks of just over six years. Some of these results can be viewed on the Alaska Energy Efficiency Map at
