Votes set on tribal energy, offshore wind bills
As many of you know we're heavily involved in tribal energy and infrastructure projects. It's exciting to see tribes have an opportunity to achieve true energy independence. I'll be curious to see if they use this to develop more renewable sources or if it's used to keep aging coal fired power plants in operation. I certainly see this as an opportunity to provide energy for tribal commercial enterprises which are fiscally handicapped by having to purchase power from a non tribal source. If nothing else it should make it easier for tribes to develop transmission to commercial enterprises. Although I don't have as much experience with it I think the development of offshore wind continues to be a positive. Particularly in light of the most recent news regarding climate change and global warming.
