The Center for Next Generation Photovoltaics, a U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC) program, will host a webinar as a part of the Next Generation Photovoltaics Lecture Series, titled “Challenges and Potential of Solar PV on Tribal Lands,” at 4:00 p.m. Central on May 16, 2017.

The webinar will be posted on the Next Generation Photovoltaics website just before the webinar.  

Berlyn Hubler, Tribal Program Coordinator for Grid Alternatives, will present “Challenges and Potential of Solar PV on Tribal Lands” Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 4:00-5:00 pm (Central).

The lecture is part of the Next Generation Photovolatics series.


The implementation of Solar PV on Tribal lands is challenging but has immense potential. This talk will discuss the hurdles that exist for Tribal solar projects and the energy issues that are driving a need for solar in the various Tribal regions. Additionally, it will provide an overview of both the approach and the key successes and impacts that GRID Alternatives is using in their Tribal Program.
