The solar technologies program supports responsible and equitable development of solar photovoltaic technology in Alaska and beyond.



ACEP’s test facilities and laboratories are designed 
to offer a unique testing environment to technology developers, utility managers and other decision makers. Envisioned as an intermediate step to full commercial deployment, these facilities were carefully designed for a range of testing needs, enabling assessment of product performance based on many real world conditions.
