Solar power brings light to homes on Navajo Nation
February 9, 2017
KAYENTA – Electrical power lines are nowhere in sight from Helen Salazar’s home. She lives on a dirt road in Monument Valley, part of the Navajo Nation. Throughout her life, Salazar has adapted to the challenges of living in a remote, off-grid home.
She uses an ice chest to help perishable foods last longer, makes trips to a local store several times a week and dries meat to preserve it.
