Optional Tour: Spokane Tribal Housing Solar Project
On August 1, there will be a 1/2 Day Tour of the Spokane Tribal Housing Authority Solar Project. This Solar Project was initiated in response to extensive power outages caused by extensive regional wildfires that have gotten worse in recent decades as a result of the climate crisis. The Tribe partnered with the U.S. Dept. of Energy, Grid Alternatives, and Wells Fargo Bank to install the project in a manner that minimized any financial match from the Tribe. Transportation will be provided if you RSVP. Please RSVP to Peggy Harris to inquire if there is additional space available.
