Enact a Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS)

A Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) would set realistic goals and deadlines for the railbelt utilities from Fairbanks through Homer to achieve a transition to clean energy. The proposed RPS benchmarks are 25% renewable energy by 2027; 55% by 2035; and 80% by 2040. These goals are bare minimums, but they ensure that railbelt utility customers are insulated from volatile fossil fuel prices and our grids will be prepared for Alaska’s next economy.
