WASHINGTON, June 28, 2017 - The Energy Department (DOE) Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs has allocated $7.8 million to 13 clean energy and energy efficiency projects on Native American lands. The grants will enable energy system installations to be done on more than 3,000 tribal buildings and homes, reaping a $2 million savings for the collective beneficiaries. “These energy development and efficiency projects will provide economic benefits to American Indian tribes and Alaskan Native villages for many years to come,” said Office of Indian Energy Director William Bradford. Since 2002, DOE has invested more than $66.5 million in more than 200 tribal energy projects. For more information, click here.
