Tribal Solar Accelerator Fund logo
Founded in 2018, the Tribal Solar Accelerator Fund aims to catalyze the growth of solar energy and expand solar job opportunities in tribal communities across the United States. The fund awards grants for projects that clearly focus on building renewable energy infrastructure, particularly new solar energy projects in tribal communities, that are feasible, cost-effective, and engage broad tribal community participation. Six North Coast tribes had the honor of being awarded Tribal Solar Accelerator Fund grants in the 2019/2020 cycle, making a perfect partnership with GRID Alternatives North Coast, who has been on the ground installing solar in the region since 2011.
