The Alaska Energy Authority (the Authority) will not be issuing a Renewable Energy Fund (REF) Request for Applications (RFA) in Fiscal Year 2017. For more information please see this Announcement Regarding the Renewable Energy Fund Round X (Link)
The Alaska Renewable Energy Fund (REF) provides benefits to Alaskans by assisting communities across the state to reduce and stabilize the cost of energy. The program is designed to produce cost-effective renewable energy for heat and power to benefit Alaskans statewide. The program also creates jobs, uses local energy resources, and keeps money in local economies.
The REF was established by the Alaska State Legislature in 2008, and extended 10 years in 2012. The REF is managed by the Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) and provides public funding for the development of qualifying and competitively selected renewable energy projects in Alaska.
