The Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians has announced the development of a large-scale solar and energy storage project funded and approved by the California Energy Commission (CEC). The solar and storage microgrid will enable the Paskenta Tribe to power its operations using a sustainable and resilient renewable energy solution. The project is part of the tribe’s efforts to achieve energy sovereignty by aligning its energy infrastructure plans with its economic development plans.
“Our tribe has prioritized energy planning since 2018 and we are proud to be the recipients of this historic renewable energy infrastructure project that will enhance our energy security,” said Tribal Chairman Andrew “Dru” Alejandre. “As stewards of the land, it is our responsibility to ensure we operate sustainably and preserve our environment for future generations. This new project supports our tribe’s goals of reducing our carbon footprint.”
