A New Mexico Indian tribe, the Jemez Pueblo, is looking to build the first utiltiy-scale electric plant powered by solar energy on tribal lands.

Other tribes, notably the Navajo in Arizona and New Mexico, have used solar power in the past but not on this scale.

Additionally, the Campo Kumeyaay Nation near San Diego, California have built a large, 50-megawatt wind farm, but have not ventured into solar.

This project, set to be housed on a 30-acre site with about 14,850 soalar panels, would really be the first of its kind.
