"How do you Save energy?" photo contest

Chugach Electric’s Member Appreciation Day will be observed on Friday, October 2, 2020. The day serves as an opportunity to celebrate National Cooperative and Energy Awareness Month. Out of concern and safety for our members, employees and community, we have chosen not to host our in-person event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, that will not stop us from showing appreciation to our members!


“How do you save energy?” Photo Contest

We are looking for high quality images taken of how you save energy at your home or business. Photos can highlight your recent LED upgrade, your energy saving appliance, or another fun and creative way you are saving energy. Up to three (3) entries per membership.

The photo contest will run from September 1 through September 25, 2020.  All entries must be received by 11:59 pm on Friday, September 25, 2020. This contest is not open to Chugach employees.

Chugach Cleanup Day

Chugach was proud to participate in the 2020 Anchorage Chamber of Commerce Citywide Cleanup. Each May, businesses and individuals from across Anchorage fan out to pick up trash. Chugach's crew cleaned up the area around our headquarters.

Chugach supports healthy hearts

Chugach was proud to support the 2020 Anchorage Go Red Luncheon. The event is a key fundraiser in local communities for the American Heart Association.  It focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke in both men and women by promoting healthy lifestyles, building awareness and raising money for research and education. Chugach employees have a long-time commitment to the mission of raising awareness and promoting healthy hearts
