DOE funding millions in Native American clean energy projects
The United States Department of Energy (DOE) will be funding clean energy projects in two dozen American Indian and Alaska Native communities, it announced yesterday.
According to the DOE plant, projects will center on clean energy and energy efficiency and the overall investment will top $9 million across the 24 tribal communities.
The initiative includes upwards of $16 million in cost sharing in association with some of the projects, so the total investment value could actually surpass $25 million.

Solar, wind, natural gas
Each individual project — all projects were competitively selected — is unique. Overall, the initiative will involve the construction of a wide array of clean energy components: solar photovoltaic (PV) installations, natural gas power systems, wind turbines, marine hydrokinetic (tidal) power systems, and more.
Multiple states involved
This set of clean energy projects will take place in nine different states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, California, Alaska, Montana, South Dakota, Michigan, New Mexico, and New York.
The DOE says that is has invested more than $50 million in almost 200 tribal clean energy projects since 2002 through its Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs.Source → U.S. Department of Energy
