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 family and facility scale solar technologies for families, provides green job training, fosters new Native-owned green businesses, and plants windbreak and shade trees around homes. These solutions are sustainable, economically beneficial, environmentally friendly, and celebrate the Native Americans' respect for the 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.”
