A Green Bank for Alaska
Green Banks fund things like heat pump programs and electric car charger systems that are good for our wallets and good for Alaska. A green bank bill was introduced by the governor in 2022. But it proposed putting the Green Bank within AIDEA, a controversial state agency that focuses on heavy industries and exports. Placing the Green Bank in a community-oriented agency like the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation would put it, and Alaskans, on the path to success.
