Tribal Energy Webinar: Facility- and Community-Scale Project Development

September 26, 2018 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm


Co-sponsored by the DOE Office of Indian Energy and the Western Area Power Administration, this webinar will describe how taking on facility- and community-scale energy projects can allow tribes to gain experience and expertise in project development while limiting risk; however, like utility-scale projects, facility- and community-scale projects also have their own unique challenges. For example, tribes often run into difficulty when it comes to finding money to build these smaller-scale projects.

This webinar will outline options for financing and addressing other challenges related to facility- and community-scale project development. Attendees will learn about available financing mechanisms that can allow tribes to develop projects with limited to no upfront capital costs, including community solar models, third-party vendors, energy savings performance contracts, and utility energy service contracts.
