I recently had the opportunity to present at the Tlingit and Haida Regional Housing Authority Energy Fair in Hoonah.

THRHA presented a Video about energy conservation.  The video emphasized setting your thermostat between 62 and 68 degrees, setting your hot water heater at 120 degrees, and applying for the AHFC Weatherization Program.  I gave a presentation showing that heating oil is the largest energy use in Hoonah, and the best way to reduce heating oil use is through addressing air infiltration into houses.  The state has a couple of programs to help with this principally the AHFC home Rebate program and the Weatherization program.  I talked about further opportunities for efficiency, and options for renewable energy.
