OPVP seeks to provide off-the-grid families with solar
1 Jan 2019
WINDOW ROCK — President Russell Begaye signed a services contract between the Office of the President and Vice President and Big Navajo Energy Nov. 28 to bring solar power units to Navajo families.
“This money is to provide electricity to families that need it, especially in places where it’s really expensive to run electric lines to homes,” Begaye said. “Because if a person lives up to seven miles off the grid, that could easily be up to $200,000 to provide electricity to that home. With solar energy, we could provide cheap energy. We’re excited for the families receiving this.”
