Net-metering benefits

 Solarize Spenard participants are eligible for Chugach’s net-metering benefits. Net metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid and then owners use that credit in the evening or cloudy days. The total inputs and outputs to your home are totaled at the end of the month.

Pricing Chart

These are the base prices that Anchorage Solar has offered for the campaign. Prices will vary depending on your homes individual needs. Schedule your site assessment today to learn more!

Anchorage Solar is offering additional savings if the total kW reach through the campaign exceeds 20kW. The first chart is the low capacity pricing per kW and the second chart is the high capacity prices, or the prices everyone will receive is more than 20kW total is installed. For average sized systems, 20kW is about 6 homes -- this means if roughly 6 of your neighbors all sign contracts everyone gets additional savings!
