Solar Power for Navajo Nation
Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright load up the Goal Zero van with panels, power packs and lights and hit the road. This project was part of a larger ongoing operation run by Elephant Energy, known as Eagle Energy to the Navajo. They are a non-profit dedicated to resolving the energy access issues in Africa and in the Navajo Nation. Eagle Energy and The Honnold Foundation partnered with Goal Zero, The North Face, and Clif Bar to install solar panels and lights on rural homes and to donate to an entrepreneurship program Eagle Energy has already set in motion.
