Solar power is a renewable energy resource that requires no pipelines. Solar generation adds no harmful emissions to the environment. So in an era of limits on fossil fuels, solar power makes a lot of sense. But the startup costs are high. On this show we’ll learn more about solar power projects in our Native Nations. Why doesn’t every house in sun-rich areas like the Southwest and California have solar power? Can solar power create more Native American jobs?
