New initiative to tackle energy problems for Alaska small businesses

by Michelle Saport  |   

High energy costs are detrimental to a business' bottom line, but many Alaska businesses do not have the time to investigate energy efficiency measures. To make it easier for Alaska businesses to find the technology, services and financing that they need, the Alaska Small Business Development Center (AK SBDC) has launched a new energy efficiency initiative.

Under the new initiative, AK SBDC provides free business and financial planning to help Alaskan companies navigate the confusing world of energy finance, technology and service providers. That way, businesses can get the information they need for their next efficiency and save money.

Adam Krynicki, technology and energy director at AKSBDC, says "the goal is to connect Alaska businesses with the products, services and financing they need, and help them integrate new energy measures -- without all the hassle."

"In short, we're taking the inefficiency out of energy efficiency by helping Alaskans plan for their next project and connecting them with the help they need."

Businesses can get more information by requesting a free advising session from the SBDC at or by calling the Fairbanks office at (907) 456-7232.
