Native American tribes across the U.S. have access to abundant solar, wind and other renewable energy resources, representing a substantial economic opportunity for tribes. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory will host three invitation-only, all-day listening sessions. Each of these sessions will provide tribal participants an opportunity to:

  1. Discover large-scale renewable electricity and its economic potential;

  2. Receive critical information about your tribe’s potential opportunity to sell energy to market;

  3. Share your thoughts about how the new program could best assist your tribe; and

  4. Learn from other tribes’ experiences with large-scale renewable energy resource development and generation.
By submitting this form, you are applying to participate in one of these three sessions.

Dates: To be determined, approximately April 10-11, April 18, and April 22.

Locations: To be determined, likely East Coast, Midwest, and West Coast. 

Travel: Selected participating tribes will receive a $1,000 travel award.
