Project Description

The Hualapai Tribe is located on the end of their existing utility grid which has subjected them to high costs and poor reliability of electric service. The first phase of the project will establish a tribally operated utility to provide service to tribal customers at Grand Canyon West, which has been operating without grid power for the past seven years. The second phase of the project will examine the feasibility and strategy for establishing a tribal utility to serve the remainder of the Hualapai Reservation.
