This project will identify, develop, finance, and implement renewable energy projects that meet the unique needs of tribal communities, including education, hands-on training, and energy cost reductions for tribal members. The Tribal Solar Accelerator Fund leverages state and federal programs, philanthropic funds, and strategic partnerships. TSAF will support 25+ tribes to install solar power, train more than 200 tribal members through those projects, reduce tribal residential project energy costs up to 50%, and prepare 5-10 tribal partners to apply for large scale DOE grants.
