Title: Final Report to the Department of Energy Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency

Abstract

The Pala Band of Mission Indians was awarded a DOE-EERE Solar Energy Grant for FY 2016 and 2017. The project involved installing a 94.8 kW DC photovoltaic (PC) solar system on the Pala Fire Station to offset up to 95% of grid-derived energy and reduce overall CO 2 generation from the facility. Pala successfully installed rooftop and carport-mounted solar panels at the fire station, and to date has generated of 219,227 kWh of energy and offset 274,034 pounds of CO 2. The project was successfully executed, and we recommend other tribes to undertake similar projects if they are located in areas with sufficient solar exposure. DOE should continue to make these funds available to tribes.
