Arctic Solar Ventures 2018 Impact Report

As we welcome 2019 and reflect on 2018, we are appreciative of our staff, customers, and partners who contributed to our success. Through public awareness and a competitive business climate, solar is thriving.

Our 2018 Impact Report highlights the impact of our triple bottom-line approach to business in the areas of economy, community, and environment (as highlighted by these three key metrics).

1. Our work was supported by 52 Alaskan vendors (a 13% increase over 2017).
2. Our projects produced $1.2 million in tax and electricity savings.
3. Our 650 kilowatts of operating projects (350kW commissioned in 2018) resulted in the reduced emissions of 508 less vehicles on the road.

This year we also made a significant contribution to the future of the industry by forming the Alaska Solar Energy Industry Association (AKSEIA). AKSEIA brings together the industry to advance education and deliver robust consumer protections to Alaskans.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our success in 2018. Let’s make 2019 even better for our economy, community, and environment.

Introducing the Alaska Solar Energy Industry Association – AKSEIA

AKSEIA logo1

Big news, Alaska! Today we are pulling the wraps off of something we’ve had in the works for awhile… the Alaska Solar Energy Industry Association (AKSEIA).

AKSEIA’s mission is to build a strong solar industry in Alaska through advocacy and education. As the only trade association for the solar industry in Alaska, AKSEIA will represent all organizations that promote, manufacturer, build, and support the development of solar energy in Alaska. It is our goal to work with our member companies to champion industry best-practices & cost-competitive building practices, foster the removal of market barriers, and to educate the public on the benefits of solar energy in Alaska.

AKSEIA from its onset will be a democratically run and an open-to-all membership-supported organization. Affiliated with the national Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), AKSEIA will also interface on federal issues affecting the solar industry in Alaska.

We look forward to helping get AKSEIA off the ground with other Alaskan solar companies, suppliers, support organizations, and manufacturers. We are conducting outreach now to fellow founding members and interested parties so please contact us below if you would like to help.

For further information please contact Stephen and look for more on akseia.org in the future.

Our first participating event will be on November 7 with REAP discussing residential solar trends and policies with ACEP from 5-7pm at the Anchorage Museum.
