Give the Gift of Heat to Native American Families!
Trees, Water & People in Fort Collins, CO by Megan Maiolo-Heath
Trees, Water & People's Tribal Renewable Energy Program puts the power of nature — the warmth of the sun, the power of the wind, the shelter of trees — to work for Native Americans. Working with reservation communities, TWP builds and installs solar air heaters for families in need, provides green job training to tribes around the country, and plants windbreak and shade trees around homes. Solar heaters reduce a family's monthly utility bill by 20-30% each month for up to 25 years!
Trees, Water & People’s brings solar heating to Native American families throughout the U.S., from Montana to New Mexico.
We have produced over 750 solar air heating systems for Native Americans, keeping 21,295 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions out of the atmosphere, reducing monthly heating costs by 20-30%, and saving families and tribes more than $3.3 million. In addition, we have trained over 100 "Renewable Energy Warriors" in green technologies.
