Welcome to the Southwest Alaska Energy Network

What We Do

The Southwest Alaska Energy Network is a collaborative effort of the Southwest Alaska Municipal Conference and partners in the Aleutians, Bristol Bay, and Kodiak to accelerate investment in Southwest Alaska’s energy future. The project is building a network of energy managers, operators, and leaders able to tap into resources to achieve their communities’ goals for affordable, sustainable, and reliable energy.

We have over 30 commercial energy audits completed or in progress, with cost savings of over $80,000 per year. Many of those audited go on to apply for an USDA REAP grant that covers 25% of the cost of energy efficiency retrofits for small businesses. If you are a business owner or fishing vessel owner anywhere in Alaska, you can learn more about the program here or by emailing energy@swamc.org. Alaskan business owners are saving money while investing in the energy efficiency of their businesses: you can too!
