Action Needed - Contact Legislators to Save PCE
Alaskans throughout our state are relying on the Alaska Legislature to fund the Power Cost Equalization (PCE) program by voting to reverse the sweep next month. We cannot overstate how critical this program is to Alaskans. As it stands, the PCE program has no funding for fiscal year 2022, which started last week. Contact your legislators, explain the impacts of PCE funding on your family and community (if you live in one of the 194 PCE communities), and urge them to vote to reverse the sweep.Click the link below for the legislature's website where contact information can be found.

PCE: Rural Alaska’s Lifeline
- 194 PCE Communities.
- Who gets PCE:
- One meter per consumer.
- Only the first 500 kWh.
- Community facilities receive PCE.
- Up to 70 kWh/resident per month.
- PCE is funded from endowment earnings, not general fund money
- PCE complements renewable integration and efficiency measures.
- Without PCE, energy costs in rural communities would be detrimental to the economy and livability.
