Tribal Renewable Energy


Trees, Water & People's Tribal Renewable Energy Program puts the power of nature — the warmth of the sun, the power of the wind, the shelter of trees — to work for Native Americans. Working with reservation communities, TWP builds and installs supplemental solar heaters for families, provides green job training, and plants windbreak and shade trees around homes. These solutions are sustainable, economically beneficial, environmentally friendly, and celebrate the Native Americans' respect for Mother Earth.

“Trees, Water & People is truly on the front lines of Native renewable energy work and it meets important financial and cultural needs in the communities it serves. The reality is that low-cost, efficient heating systems like those made and installed by TWP and Henry Red Cloud can have a significant positive impact on the quality of life for reservation families.”
