Launching Networks of Entrepreneurs

We are working with Navajo leaders and seven Navajo communities on an economic development plan to grow locally-owned businesses through DinéHózhó L3C. This community-supported partnership is launching new ventures with local entreprenuers, creating new investment tools, building capacity, and supporting culturally-relevant businesses such as Hogan bed and breakfasts, home-based tour companies, and eco-tourism inns. Learn more about DinéHózhó ›

Stepping up the PACE

Energy efficiency projects can be expensive. We're working to get legislation passed in the state of Arizona that would give home owners the flexibility to pay for a project across two decades through an added fee (assessment) on their property tax bill. The long-term payback and low interest rates mean that utility bills drop more than the cost of paying for the upgrade. Learn more about Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) ›

Market Based Solutions - Why It's Important

Why It’s Important

When market forces incentivize unsustainable development, as is currently the case with energy development across the plateau, the land, water, air, and communities of the plateau suffer. When we can align market forces with conservation, however, solutions are profound, durable, and enjoy a much broader base of support.
