We empower tribal communities to grow their renewable energy capacity through education and off-grid solar photovoltaics projects.


Tribal lands in the U.S. make up an estimated 2% of the nation’s land mass and contain approximately 5% of the renewable energy potential (DOE, 2018). Yet, many tribal members lack access to electricity, including 15,000 homes on the Navajo Nation. To tackle this issue, Native Renewables designed the Navajo Clean Energy Program to provide Navajo and Hopi families the opportunity to own their power.




Native Renewables formed in 2016 to catalyze clean energy for Native American homes and communities by building partnerships, seeking cost-effective solutions that will reduce fossil fuel use, supporting local economic development, and growing technical capacity.

What We’ve Accomplished

We have co-hosted events and deployed solar photovoltaics in Native American communities. See some examples here.
