The Alaska Energy Statistics Report is now available. Funded by the Alaska Energy Authority and prepared in partnership with the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER), the Alaska Energy Statistics Report provides information about electrical energy production, sources, consumption and prices across the state.
Additional analysis includes impacts of renewable energy and AEA’s Power Cost Equalization (PCE) program. Alaskans in rural communities that rely on fuel oil had the most expensive electricity, with prices from roughly 30 cents to more than $1 per kilowatt hour (kWh) in 2011. For comparison, rates in Southcentral range from thirteen to twenty-two cents per kWh.
New this year, the Alaska Energy Authority is soliciting feedback on the energy statistics report. Many unique user groups reply on the report for information and the intent is to ensure that the report remains valuable and informative. The survey link and report are available at Akenergyauthority.org.
The Alaska Energy Authority is a public corporation of the state with a mission to reduce the cost of energy in Alaska. This mission is achieved by investing in Alaska’s infrastructure; diversifying Alaska’s energy portfolio; energy planning and policy; and training and technical assistance.
