City of Valdez 2019 Energy Assistance Program

The Valdez City Council approved an Energy Assistance Program to help local residents and businesses relieve some of the energy costs this winter. The program offers an energy credit of $550.00 per household that can be applied to either a residential/commercial electric account or a residential/commercial fuel oil account.

The program is voluntary and requires pre-registration to be considered.

Registration will take place at City Hall commencing November 1, 2018 between the hours of 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, with extended hours until 7:00 pm on November 28th, 2018 and then again on December 28th. Registration ends at the close of business on December 31, 2018.

Registration forms will be available at City Hall and on the City's website (upper right of home page). Verification of local residency will be required during registration, so please bring along a valid ID and a recent utility bill or other documentation proving residence at the address for where the energy credit is to be applied. If applying as business a copy of current business license is required.

Eligible households may register via US Mail as long as all required documentation is attached to a notarized registration form and all information is received in City Hall by December 31, 2018.

For a residence to qualify it must be the primary residence of the individual applying for the credit; there must be an active electric or fuel oil account associated with this residence in the name of the individual applying for the credit; it must be physically located within the city limits of Valdez; and no other person or a business may apply for an energy credit for the same dwelling.
