Why Choose A Solar PPA?
While the many Native American Tribes and Alaska Natives tribes in the United States host various customs and languages, they all share a strong belief in preserving the natural environment. Solar energy is the perfect fit for those tribes looking to reduce environmental impact while creating savings on electricity, and supporting communities.
Native American Tribes can benefit immensely from solar, due to the reliability of solar energy production, even in remote areas, and the extreme energy cost savings created. Additionally, solar helps Tribes maintain environmental responsibility, as solar significantly reduces the carbon footprint of those utilizing its energy production.
A report from the Bureau of Indian Affairs showed that out of the 326 American Indian reservations, “more than 150 have the resource capacity needed to sustain a 1- to 25-MW renewable and/or natural gas power generation facility.”. While some grant programs exist for tribes to access solar development funds, a solar PPA can be a much faster and easier path to solar electricity, and also complimentary to some grant programs. Working with a smaller, dedicated company such as SCF can speed up the process and unlock immediate & impactful savings.
Why Choose SCF?
SCF’s team is well versed in working with Tribes, potential constraints, Tribal binding authority and the importance of adherence to sovereign laws. SCF takes pride in its ability to deliver efficient, well developed & constructed solar systems on Native land.
