The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (ECBI) is requesting proposals from qualified firms for a Tribal Electric Utility Feasibility Study. The EBCI’s energy provider is Duke Energy, they provide energy for the tribe’s 180 municipal buildings, the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, and residential sector. With the expansion of North Carolina’s economies and residential sector, energy rates have steadily risen. The EBCI are looking for long term solutions to alleviate or curtail those rising costs.
The EBCI have recently created an agricultural division which also houses an energy department. The past few years the EBCI has worked on a few energy initiatives which include solar and energy retrofits to municipal buildings. Through those continued efforts the EBCI have seen the need to develop a utility. With major energy projects such as solar farms, creating and dispersing energy production becomes priority. Having a utility not only a creates the benefits of a new revenue source and job creation, it also gives the ability to use energy produced by energy initiatives.
The ECBI is interested in the potential benefits of forming and managing a Tribal Electric Utility. Please contact Cameron Cooper for a full RFP packet.
