In Alaska, the State Energy Office leveraged SEP funds to implement a residential energy efficiency program. The Alaska Legislature provided $350 million dollars to co-fund this program, which provides grants to homeowners for home energy audits. Based on the audit recommendations, homeowners can qualify for a direct cash rebate of up to $10,000 for energy efficiency upgrades performed on their home. As of January 2015, improvements have been made to approximately 16,000 Alaska homes. The average homeowner spent $11,681 and qualified for a rebate of $6,889. On average, the improvements have resulted in annual energy savings of 34 percent, or cash savings of $1,464.
