Energy Department Awards A Navajo And Hopi Project That Will Help Power 300 Homes

The U.S. Department of Energy announced a series of grant programs to help tribes across the country improve energy efficiency. One of the projects awarded will help people on the Navajo and Hopi nations. An eight-million dollar grant will help “Energizing Rural Hopi and Navajo with Solar Powered Batter-Based Systems.” The project plans to install 2.5 kilowatts off-grid solar and battery storage systems to electrify 300 tribal homes, enhancing energy resilience and increasing electrification rates within the community. The project will help families with essential power needs including lighting and refrigeration for food and medicine. Deputy Energy Secretary David Turk will be in Flagstaff Wednesday to meet with tribal leaders about the program.
