Providing Equitable Access to Clean, Affordable Transportation for Tribal Nations.
Electric Nation is a project by 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 Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Minnesota Power, Otter Tail Power Company, and Xcel Energy.
Through our sustainable ecosystem, Electric Nation will install 59 DC fast charging units on Reservations and their vital travel routes, as well as 63 Level 2 EV supply equipment points at community gathering spots, 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.
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 expanding 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.
