Sustainable Priorities for Alaska Rural Communities (SPARC)

Project Page

CCHRC helped synthesize energy efficiency retrofits in the two rural villages of Anvik and Hughes. With funding from the Denali Commission and the State of Alaska, the communities were able to complete energy audit recommendations on several community buildings. CCHRC's role was to document the energy audit recommendations, retrofits, and energy savings. The project was led by the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium.
