Chugach and ASD ready Service for emergencies
Chugach and the Anchorage School District have reached an agreement that will allow the district to use a portion of Chugach's distribution system to move power from an ASD generator on campus to power buildings at Service High School in certain types of outages. The arrangement will allow the school to function as an emergency shelter. The Regulatory Commission of Alaska approved the contract and tariff change in September. Over time, the ASD plans to install standby generators at a number of schools in the district.
Chugach is the largest electric utility in Alaska, providing power for Alaskans throughout the Railbelt through retail, wholesale and economy energy sales.
