What is Beneficial Electrification?
The term “beneficial electrification” refers to innovations in energy technologies which are creating new ways to use electricity in place of on-site fossil fuels; such as gasoline, natural gas and fuel oil.
Benefits of Beneficial Electrification:
Reduces energy costs – Electricity is often less expensive than alternative fuel
Reduces carbon emissions – Electricity is cleaner fuel than on-site fossil fuel
Improves quality of life – Electric equipment is quieter, compact, and low-maintenance
Chugach offers a variety of beneficial electrification incentive programs to its members.
Beneficial Electrification and Energy Star Incentive Program (BEEs)
Funding for both the landlord and residential BEES Incentive Program has been exhausted and is no longer available.
Visit the Federal Energy Saving Programs section of our website to learn more about the current tax incentives and future consumer rebates that may be available to you through the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The IRA program for consumer rebates is under development and expected to launch in late 2023. Details about consumer rebates will be shared as more information becomes available.
The BEES program was made possible through a grant awarded from Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN) and was available to low- and moderate-income residential members within the Municipality of Anchorage.
Heat Pump Pilot Program
Chugach is offering a Heat Pump Pilot Program to support the adoption of air-source heat pumps by residential and small commercial members. This program is being offered as a rebate to members who install an approved air-source heat pump system to provide heating and cooling for their home or business. The program may be most beneficial to members who do not have access to natural gas service.

Chugach offers several electric vehicle (EV) charging incentive programs to promote the use of EVs in Alaska. These programs support EV charging at homes and businesses within the Chugach service area by providing a bill credit after installation. The programs are encouraging the transition to electric transportation, which benefits all members by reducing rates.
Inflation Reduction Act Incentives

Signed into law in August 2022, the IRA has various energy tax credits that are currently available and consumer home energy rebate programs are expected to become available in late 2023.
