Tribal Sovereignty Through Renewable Energy
As a tribe, we saw an opportunity for energy demand reduction and wanted to create a sustainable energy source that would decrease our dependency on outside energy partners. Much like the Federal Government, we have a very clear need to own our energy production and renewable energy management.
With support from several community partners, we established a solar panel farm network across our entire reservation. The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska and Ho-Chunk, Inc. are seeing $40,000 a year in energy savings from our renewable energy management practices.
