Utilities join Navajo Nation to bring electricity to thousands
AUGUST 1ST, 2022
In the year 2022, it is difficult for some to comprehend that over 14,000 families in the United States live without electricity and water, many of whom are Navajo people that reside on the Navajo Nation. With support of Navajo Nation leaders, the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority (NTUA) partnered with the American Public Power Association (APPA) and member utilities to connect homes to the electric grid. Light Up Navajo was created as a mutual aid project that extends electricity to many homes in our communities. It is life-changing for families who have waited for electricity their entire lives.
