Watch the TSAF webinar recording

March 20, 2019

The TSAF hosted a webinar on Friday March 15 to provide prospective applicants with a deeper understanding of GRID Alternatives’ work in tribal communities, how the TSAF came to fruition, and how it will support tribal communities toward their energy sovereignty goals. We also discussed details about the application process, including the mission and vision of the Fund, required documents, and FAQs.

We are pleased with the webinar attendance and hope that it provided a good amount of background information to help your tribe/tribal organization decide if TSAF is the right pot of funding for your solar projects. The TSAF webinar was recorded and is now posted to the tribalsolar.org website, so please listen in at your convenience.

Thank you for your continued interest in the TSAF. Our team is always open to questions and feedback, so do not hesitate to contact us at contact@tribalsolar.org.


Welcome!

Greetings, friends! Welcome to the Tribal Solar Accelerator Fund.

We are a small, tribal-led staff committed to serving, supporting, and strengthening American Indian/Alaska Native tribal communities by investing in solar energy development and sustainability through grantmaking, building relationships in Indian Country, and connecting with the solar industry.

It is an exciting time for our team, organization, and partners as we launch the 2019 TSAF funding application cycle. The TSAF will provide capital to support solar demonstration projects, solar education, training, and workforce development in tribal communities around the country. If your tribe or tribal organization is looking to strengthen an existing solar energy plan or further tribal energy security, resilience and energy sovereignty through new solar projects, please check out the TSAF RFP and funding areas. You’re also invited to join us for a webinar on March 15 to learn more about our vision, funding areas, and application process.

From all of us on the TSAF team, we look forward to engaging and working with you, Indian Country’s energy innovators and leaders, as we continue to grow the opportunities for renewable energy in tribal communities.
