IN JULY, Renewable Juneau launched a new project called Juneau Carbon Offset Fund (JCOF). Businesses and travelers, residents and “outsiders” are asked to offset their carbon footprint by using Juneau Carbon Offset Fund.
While other carbon offset programs support such activities as distant tree planting operations which are difficult to monitor, JCOF works to convert fossil-fuel heating systems in lower-income households to systems run by renewable energy, conversions which would not happen without access to the Fund.
The Fund’s disbursements are selected by a diverse committee of community members who represent minority communities, religious affiliations and housing specialists. We appreciate any support given to this tax- deductible effort.
