Tribal Enterprise


Sovereignty is of paramount importance to Native American tribes, reflecting the ability to determine their future for themselves. Energy independence is a promising pathway to strengthen tribal sovereignty, tapping the variety of efficiency and renewable energy options that are now very affordable.


For a client tribe, Climate Positive staff led the creation of a strategic energy plan, scoping out the vision, objectives, and projects in concert with the tribal council. Core to plan development was conducting an assessment of energy use, quantifying annual consumption of electricity, propane and gasoline.  Another major piece of the effort was scoping out size, cost, production and payback time for solar and wind investments.


Still emerging from this ongoing project. Stay tuned!
