Phase III -- Program Fully Subscribed

EV charging

In 2019 Chugach announced it was seeking commercial customers interested in a research project to monitor the use of electric vehicle charging facilities.  Chugach reimburses up to $7,500 in installed costs in exchange for the host owning, operating, and sharing usage information for 36 months.  Four applicants were chosen, completed their installations and received reimbursement.  The four participants are Alyeska Resort, JL Properties (for its South Anchorage Mall, which houses the South Restaurant and other businesses), the Dimond Center, and the Municipality of Anchorage (for parking lot east of the Rustic Goat).  All four of the installations are publicly available and being used by EV drivers.

Below is a graph showing energy dispensed from these charging stations, as of August 31, 2021.

Following Chugach’s acquisition of the former Municipal Light & Power (ML&P), Chugach opened Phase III of the EV Charging Research Program to seek two participants in its North District (the former ML&P territory).  Two applicants from the North District locations were chosen – IBEW 1547 at 3333 Denali Street and the soon to be Aloft Hotel at 310 West 36th Avenue.  Both customers have until May 31, 2022, to complete the installation of these charging units.
