Our Mission:

Providing Equitable Access to Clean, Affordable Transportation for Tribal Nations.

Electric Nation is a program of Native Sun Community Power Development, a non-profit organization committed to connecting Tribal nations with vital regional services to promote a clean energy economy. Our project partners include Native Sun Community Power Development, state agencies, regional electric utilities, Clean Cities coalitions, and major research universities.

Electric Nation’s mission is to provide equitable access to clean, affordable transportation in multi-family housing and rural, underserved Tribal communities. We are committed to expandin access to benefits of electrified transportation to more Tribal members while growing public familiarity with clean transportation options and establishing EV corridors connecting rural Reservations and multi-family communities to key medical, educational, and retail destinations.

Through our sustainable ecosystem, Electric Nation will install 59 DC fast charging units on Reservations and their vital travel routes, as well as 78 Level 2 EV supply equipment points at community gathering sports, multi-family dwellings, Tribal colleges, and other destinations. We will deploy 16 light-duty electric vehicles, an electric shuttle, and two electric school buses while developing two new workforce training programs for Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Red Lake Nation members.

We are excited to announce our new project, which is currently in its early stages. This initiative aims to bring clean energy solutions to tribal communities in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota. We are actively engaging in discussions with tribes and identifying cohorts to ensure that this project aligns with the unique needs and priorities of each community.

Join us in our mission to create a sustainable future for our planet and the people who call it home.
