Community Study Commissioned For Home Heating Alternative
Updated: Nov 27, 2020
Ounalashka Corporation and Chena Power, LLC. has commissioned a cost-benefit analysis for the conversion of Unalaska homes and businesses to Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP). The goal is to reduce individual and business heating bills and the reduction of fossil fuel-based home heating fuels and maximize the benefit of the geothermal power readily available. The program plan provides equipment and installation costs at no charge to the selected homeowners and businesses.
The cost benefit analysis data will be collected by OptimERA in Unalaska. In doing so they will become our subject matter expert and the lead on this 3-year program. OptimERA is supplementing its technical strength by utilizing the services of Warren Taylor, PE to assist in categorization, evaluation, and selection of fit for purpose equipment.
