In 2012 the Pascua Yaqui Tribe received funding from the Department of Energy to conduct a Renewable Energy Development and Deployment Feasibility Study. This study looked at the economic and technical viability for commercial and community scale renewable energy projects on the 6,289 acres of Turtuga Ranch, primarily to identify an optimal location for a 1 MW solar installation. The Casino Del Sol, government facilities, and other buildings have been identified as potential projects.

 

This information was gathered using web searches and not from conversations with tribal representatives. The census data was found online and represents 2010 figures.
