Wealth and Job Creation for Tribal Nations
One important feature of our collaboration will be a joint effort to create well-paid jobs for many tribal members in construction and manufacturing. We believe that the energy sector provides exceptional opportunities for tribes to establish a strong workforce of skilled labor. Our projects in planning and under development can provide hundreds of long-term jobs nationwide -- jobs that we aim to make available for tribes that are often struggling with high unemployment.
Access to cheap energy, ownership of energy producing assets, and the development of a skilled workforce are keys to wealth creation for the Native American population and provide a fantastic addition to tribal economic development. A few job training programs are already ongoing. We plan to increase the tribal workforce in the solar industry substantially over the next months.
