The Juneau Carbon Offset Fund is Alaska’s only locally-targeted carbon offset fund. Funds generated from the purchase of carbon offsets, donation, and occasional grants, eliminate heating oil emissions by converting oil-based heating systems to carbon-free, high efficiency, hydro-powered heating systems for qualified lower income Juneau households. In addition to slashing these emission from these homes, homeowners realize at least a 50% savings in their heating bills!
(If you’d like to learn more about air source heat pumps, visit our heat pump pages for detailed information on how they function and how they are reshaping the entire heating industry across the globe.)
The Juneau Carbon Offset Fund is a special project of Renewable Juneau. We encourage you to first make all attempts to lower your personal and professional carbon footprint. For the remainder of your footprint that still exists, incurred from travel, shipping, fossil fuel heat or transportation, visit the Fund website to purchase carbon offsets. We’ll eliminate that carbon production for you!
At the Juneau Carbon Offset website you can choose how to offset your carbon production. Our One Click page allows you to offset quickly and easily.
