Prairie Island Indian Community Selects Consultants for Net-Zero Project
February 8, 2021
PRAIRIE ISLAND, Minn., Feb. 2, 2021–The Prairie Island Indian Community has selected a team led by Indian Energy (IE) and Chief Strategy Group (CSG), both Native American-owned companies, to help create an energy system for the Tribe that results in net-zero emissions.
Prairie Island received a $46 million appropriation from the Minnesota Legislature in 2020 to develop and execute a comprehensive renewable energy plan for the Tribe that focuses on conservation, on-site renewable energy generation, and sustainability initiatives.
"We are changing our Tribe's future with this net-zero project," said Tribal Council President Shelley Buck. "We found partners that not only understand how to create the right energy solution, but they also understand Native culture and the importance of what this project means to our sovereignty and our future. That's exciting."
