Wind power a consideration for tribal energy project


Wind power will be one of several issues a group of six tribes will study with the help of a $199,267 federal grant.

The Southwest Tribal Energy Consortium represents six tribes in California, Arizona and New Mexico. Some of the tribes could benefit from wind turbine development.

The Palm Springs area already uses wind power. About 1,200 turbines sit on federal land in San Gorgonio Pass, where the Morongo Band of Mission Indians is based.
