Commercial-Scale Renewable Energy Project Development and Finance Workshop

The DOE Office of Indian Energy and the Tribal Energy Program, with support from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, are hosting an interactive workshop that will walk participants through the process for and potential pitfalls of developing commercial-scale renewable energy projects on tribal lands. Whether small or large, the goal of a commercial-scale project is to generate revenue for the Tribe, and the electricity is sold off the reservation. Examples include a solar field or a wind farm.
