Renewable Energy Project Leasing on Tribal Lands Webinar

June 26, 2013 3:00PM MDT


The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Tribal Energy Program, and Western Area Power Administration are pleased to continue their sponsorship of the Tribal Renewable Energy Webinar Series.

According to the Intertribal Council on Utility Policy, wind resources on tribal lands in the Great Plains alone could power more than 50 million homes. The HEARTH Act of 2012 provides the opportunity for Tribes to eliminate delays, costs, federal environmental reviews, federal administrative and judicial litigation, and risks associated with Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) review and approval of tribal leases of tribal land. Attend this webinar to learn how to achieve BIA approval to adopt tribal leasing regulations.

The webinar will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Mountain time.
