In 1998, NAREEP (Native American Renewable Energy Education Project) was founded, with contributions from the Yurok, Rosebud Sioux and Zuni tribes of California. The project was created as a response to a study that showed Native populations paid the highest price for fuel and electricity, in spite of Native lands being home to the highest number of unserviced and unpowered residences. This project, however, is now defunct.
In the last 10 years, the US Department of Energy has assisted funding 93 tribal renewable energy projects for 89 tribes nationwide. These have included wind, solar, biomass, geothermal and hydro-power, as well as projects that promoted more than one type of renewable energy.
