Extreme events resulting in power outages appear to be increasing in frequency and duration across the county. Tribal communities, which are often in remote locations and/or may not be prioritized during these events, are particularly vulnerable to these outages. To address this concern, many tribal communities are considering microgrids to increase their resilience. In this session, the presenters will describe how a tribe can consider, plan, and fund a microgrid for its community.
