The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community has not installed any major renewable energy projects at this time, but momentum seems to be growing. 

Au-Awthum Tash LLC, a renewable energy developer based in Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, signed a letter of intent to install Crystal Research Corporation’s energy technologies within the Community.  Also, with funding through the Renewable Energy Investment Fund managed by the Grand Canyon Trust, a 75kW solar PV parking structure has been designed and is in the bid phase of construction. The project will offset electricity costs for a 5 building apartment complex that houses community elders. 

Through the EarthWise energy program, the Salt River Prima-Maricopa Indian Community had partnered with the Salt River Project to provide methane from a closed landfill to power a 4 MW biogas generation facility. This project has been running for 7-8 years now. 

This information was gathered using web searches and conversations with tribal representatives. The census data was found online and represents 2010 figures.
