Energy Saving Tips


GVEA’s Bill Calculator

You can calculate your monthly bill by utilizing GVEA’s Bill Calculator. Select the service type associated with your account and enter your kWh usage. If you are not sure which service type applies to your service location, contact GVEA Member Services for assistance.

Vehicle Plug-ins

A well-maintained vehicle only needs 2-4 hours of heating time to start (4-5 hours for diesel vehicles). Depending on your vehicle, the use of a timer (either programmable or hard-wired) can help reduce your monthly electric bill.
There are many benefits to plugging-in your vehicle when temperatures reach +20 or colder.

Not only do you save on your electric bill, you also help improve the air quality in the Fairbanks North Star Borough and help prevent unnecessary vehicle maintenance.
