South District

South District

Chugach’s South District begins where the North District ends in Downtown Anchorage, includes parts of East Anchorage, through South Anchorage, and down the Seward Highway to include Indian, Girdwood, Portage, Whittier, Hope, Moose Pass, and Cooper Landing. It also includes Tyonek across Cook Inlet.

The primary objective of Chugach’s rate case, currently before the Regulatory Commission of Alaska, is to consolidate North and South District rates.
