ABOUT This website was created by the Cold Climate Housing Research Center (CCHRC), a private non-profit corporation in Fairbanks, Alaska that promotes sustainable, durable, healthy housing in the Circumpolar North. The site is designed to help homeowners understand the energy performance of their homes and save money through making energy improvements. CCHRC researches energy efficient design and construction, studies alternative energy systems, develops and tests sustainable building materials and systems, and designs and prototypes energy efficient homes in various communities throughout Alaska. This website was designed with funding from the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation and the Fairbanks North Star Borough. It is part of the PORTAL grant, a program established in 2008 to help Alaskans make their homes more energy efficient in light of rising fuel prices. The program has included free consumer workshops, assistance with the state home energy rebate program, homeowner consulting, and outreach and education. Much of the content currently has an Interior/Northern Alaska focus, but will expand over the next year to cover specific regions throughout Alaska; read about the plan here. This website includes instructional videos, podcasts, informational articles, research reports, and more. Please explore!
