Pinoleville Pomo Nation

Pinoleville Pomo Nation Youth Education Facility-RoofTop Solar Demonstration Project

Pinoleville Pomo Nation will install approximately 15 kilowatts of solar PV on the rooftop of the tribal youth education facility to provide 10-18% of the total electrical usage of all the tribal governmental buildings.

Additionally, the project will recruit 4 tribal trainees to complete 300 hours of solar installation training and certify 2 of 4 trainees as solar installers.

The tribe will also develop 2 educational modules for elementary, middle, and high school students and will test the 60 tribal students using the on-site solar system and additional hands-on activity to promote renewable energy.
