Agua Caliente Wind-Solar Project Gets Federal Boost

On February 16, the U.S. Department of Energy announced a $214,415 grant to the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians to help develop a joint wind-solar energy project on tribal land, reported mydesert.com.

In December 2011, MidAmerican Energy, owned by Warren Buffet, bought a non-controlling 49 percent stake from NRG Energy in the $1.8 billion solar project, reported The Street.

Secretary of Energy Steven Chu announced the funding support as part of $6.5 million awarded for 19 clean energy projects on tribal lands across the country.

The tribe will put the money toward a feasibility study to evaluate the potential for developing a 10-megawatt combined wind and solar power generation project, called the Agua Caliente Solar Project, on the tribe’s reservation in Palm Springs, California.
