United Tribes Technical College’s Solar for Everyone Initiative
The United Tribes Technical College will build a 21 kilowatt commercial installation on the UTTC Skills Center building, including a 21kW battery storage system.
This installation will provide a clear symbol of UTTC’s dedication to moving towards a renewable energy future and works well with the land-stewardship focus of programs in the building.
The goals are to:
- Enhance and strengthen energy development, infrastructure, and independence among tribal nations in the Northern Plains.
- Establish a solar installation project that provides a significant percentage of the electrical needs for a single major facility at UTTC that will be used as a centralized educational location for outreach and training activities.
- Strengthen an interdisciplinary team that will lead collaborative community efforts using the demonstration site to expand other solar projects in the region.
