Light Up Navajo

The Navajo Nation stretches over 27,000 square miles from northeastern Arizona into Utah and New Mexico where over 15,000 Navajo families live in remote areas without access to electricity. Inspired by our work on Kayenta, Swinerton Renewable Energy (SRE) and SOLV partnered with the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority (NTUA) on the Lightmakers Project to bring more light to the Navajo Nation one home at a time.

The Lightmakers Project

To accelerate change on a local level, SRE has equipped 43 homes with Yeti 150 Power Stations and Boulder 50 solar panel kits and two Light-a-Life 350 LED lights from Goal Zero. Before each phase of the project, the NTUA identifies several homes in need of immediate power. Installed at no cost to owners, each home will save upward of $300 per week – nearly $4,000 a year – otherwise spent on batteries, kerosene or other fossil fuels.
