SMA Secures Solar Study Grant for Picuris Pueblo

January 10th, 2017

Souder Miller & Associates is providing critical renewable energy development support to the Northern Pueblos Housing Authority and Picuris Pueblo.

SMA is conducting a feasibility assessment and evaluating multiple finance options to identify the most cost-effective use of tribal, federal, and state project funding. In addition, SMA is assisting with selection of a design-build solar developer for the proposed 1-megawatt solar facility, to be built at Picuris Pueblo.

This effort will make a positive impact by increasing use of renewable energy, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels and ultimately supporting tribal sovereignty.
