Why is New Energy Economy helping to solarize Major Market? Because the Tsabetsaye family exemplifies the ethic of community care and energy sovereignty that we believe is critical to survive and thrive in a time of climate chaos.
"I have seen that in any great undertaking it is not enough for a person to depend simply upon themself." - Lone Man (Isna-la-wica), Teton Sioux
It is foolish to believe that corporate monopoly control of energy for profit will help us make the transition we need, provide for community members in times of crisis and natural disaster, or reach out to lift all boats. The sun shines and the wind blows around all of us, offering clean and abundant energy to all. When local government, businesses, and individuals can control their own energy future, together they can care and provide for each other.
Listen to Darrell Tsabetsaye and his son David explain what community care and self-sufficiency means to them, and how solarizing Major Market is an example of sovereignty for the Zuni people.
