olar Project to Meet 35 Percent of Tribe's Energy Needs


The Soboba Band of Luisen͂o Indians is demonstrating its leadership in sustainable development with a community-scale solar project that will generate up to 3 megawatts of power — nearly 35 percent of the tribe's total energy needs.

On Monday the tribe broke ground on the first of three solar power arrays. The first, 1-megawatt facility will be built on the undeveloped eastern side of the reservation, powering the administrative center, schools and other community buildings. Construction will begin on phase two later this year, near the first facility.
