Projects on Tribal Lands

Tribal Energy Projects (2002–2014)

DOE has invested $48 million in 183 tribal clean energy projects valued at $93.6 million. DOE's investments were leveraged by $45.6 million in tribal cost-share. Tangible results of these investments include:

  • Retrofitted 70 tribal buildings (representing more than 1.8 million square feet), saving tribes more than 10 million kilowatt-hours of energy and $2.5 million per year
  • Completed energy audits on more than 250 tribal buildings
  • Helped move more than 580 megawatts of potential new renewable energy generation into development
  • Supported tribes in assessing the potential for more than 4 gigawatts of new renewable energy generation
  • Over 170 tribal members trained as part of these tribal energy projects

The Tribal Energy Program supports a variety of energy-related projects on tribal lands. Through these projects, tribes have built the institutional capacity to manage their energy needs, assessed the feasibility of energy efficiency and renewable energy installations. And they have demonstrated the viability of installing renewable energy systems on tribal lands.
