Project Description

The Jicarilla Apache Nation's reservation is located in the mountains and rugged mesas of northern New Mexico. The concept of sound stewardship is a fundamental element of Jicarilla governance. The Jicarilla Nation looks to the Jicarilla Apache Utility Authority to chart a course for sustainable development of energy resources and business opportunities for the welfare of the Jicarilla Nation and its members. The Jicarilla Apache Utility Authority will conduct a baseline assessment of supply and demand resources for all energy categories, including conventional, renewable, and efficiency resources. The potential for both retail and wholesale (export) will be analyzed. The major milestones will include the development of baseline assessments; development of strategic plan elements for renewable energy and energy efficiency; and selection and launch of one or more specific projects.
