The Navajo Technical University Energy Efficiency Project commenced in June, 2016, and it is generously funded by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. In the first phase of the project (June 2016 through February 2017), a master database that organizes the energy used by the Navajo Technical University was created. Based on this database, an optimal mix of renewable energy generation and energy efficiency improvements will be designed and then implemented at the Navajo Technical University (NTU).The goal is to create an example of a successful distributed energy market on the NTU campus, and to transform NTU into a leader in the energy efficiency space in the Navajo Nation.
