This paper provides an overview of the process for developing a tribal energy plan. The process includes the following steps: developing a tribal energy vision, energy efficiency programs, renewable energy resource development, electrification programs and energy plan implementation. Working with the Hualapai Tribe in Arizona, the workshop curriculum was presented and led to instantaneous energy efficiency projects. Stemming from the tribal reports from the Western Regional Air Partnership (WRAP), the foremost recommendation for the 237 tribes within the WRAP was to create energy plans. Tribes should begin the process of energy planning due to the following issues: economic development (cost savings, revenue generation, job creation, and profit creation), increasing tribal sovereignty, energy independence, and cultural integrity.
