U.S. Department of Energy Selects 15 Tribal Energy Infrastructure Deployment Projects

Aug. 15, 2018

On August 15, DOE announced nearly $9 million in funding for 15 tribal energy infrastructure projects. This funding through the Office of Indian Energy will help Native American and Alaska Native communities harness their vast, undeveloped energy resources to reduce or stabilize energy costs, as well as increase energy security and resilience. These energy projects, valued at nearly $25 million, are the result of a competitive funding opportunity announcement announced in February 2018. Tribal entities that received wind project funding are the Alaska Village Electric Cooperative in Anchorage, Alaska; the Spirit Lake Tribe in Fort Totten, North Dakota; and the Unalakleet Native Corporation in Unalakleet, Alaska.
