From the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy:
Native American tribal lands comprise approximately 5% of all #US renewable #energy resources. The Energy Department continues to fund #tribal projects that deploy energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies to spur economic development and cut energy costs. Today, we announced new funding for#solar and energy efficiency projects in 8 states for tribes and native villages. Learn more about this funding which adds to the $41.8 million the Energy Department has invested in 183 tribal clean energy projects since 2002: http://go.usa.gov/3Cve9.
