November 30, 2020



SAN JUAN COUNTY, Utah — Chastity De Guzman and her four children have lived in a home on the Navajo Nation without power since 2015. She said they had been on a waiting list for over two years when a crew finally showed up in September to connect their home to electricity.

"It was emotional," De Guzman told KUER radio. "Electricity was, like, essential for us, and especially with the pandemic going on, it's made things a lot easier."

Her home in Aneth is one of 27 in Utah that have received power from the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority this fall, according to Deenise Becenti, a spokesperson for the company.
