Native Renewables empowers Native American families to achieve energy independence by growing renewable energy capacity, affordable access to off-grid power, and solar workforce training for Indigenous workers. The Rural Climate Partnership is supporting Native Renewables to expand off-grid solar PV system installations and train a local workforce to address the urgent energy needs of the Hopi and Navajo Nations. ~14,000 households currently use dirty fuels, like gas-powered generators, or have no electricity at all.
