Coalition Overarching Narrative (applicant submitted) (PDF)

Project Description:
The coalition, led by the Pala Band of Mission Indians, would establish the SoCal Tribal Accelerated Clean Energy Economy (SCTACEE) initiative, which aims to rapidly expand an innovative clean energy economy for the region encompassing the twenty-four member tribes of the Southern California Tribal Chairmen’s Association (SCTCA). If provided an implementation grant, the coalition proposes to establish a SCTACEE facility; build and operate at least one solar panel manufacturing plant; deploy a commercial- or community-scale tribally owned resilient clean energy facility; deploy a utility-scale, tribally owned clean energy facility(ies); demonstrate a dynamic wireless electric charging road; and establish and manage an intertribal transactive energy micro-market. These efforts will broaden the regional economy of the SCTCA member tribes and support climate change mitigation efforts by developing clean energy infrastructure.
