Through this pilot project, RREAL and the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe will collaborate to install the first community solar array in the nation on an American Indian reservation. Benefits from the 200kW system will flow to low-income Leech Lake band members through the existing Energy Assistance infrastructure, while creating renewable clean sources of energy.
