In collaboration with Navajo Green JobsGreen Awareness Day on Monday, February 28, Trees, Water & People and Lakota Solar Enterprises will travel to Shiprock, New Mexico for a demonstration solar air heater installation. This will be our first trip to the Navajo Nation, and we are very excited to bring the simple and economic technology of solar air heaters to a new tribe and a new part of the country. “It’s particularly appropriate that we will get to show the heaters off to Diné folks who are already interested in green jobs,” remarks Lacey Gaechter, TWP’s National Director, alluding to the fact that the largest part of the Trees, Water & People’s Tribal Renewable Energy Program consists of providing renewable energy trainings to Native Americans. We hope this trip will be just one of many that we make to the Four Corners area as we grow partnerships with tribes in this new region. Heaters and trainings for all!
