Description: This video was produced to share the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe's endeavors and advances as leaders in the region for solar and sustainability. Shot on Earth Day 2019, our goal was to share what Leech Lake has accomplished with our 200kW community solar PV and solar heating projects, our large Guaranteed Energy Savings Project (of which solar was an energy conservation measure - ECM), Electric Vehicle Charging (tied to solar) and our future goals. Leech Lake's mission is to provide solar energy and other sustainable actions to serve all its Band Members, to provide solar equality, and to be better stewards of Mother Earth. "We have the ability to lead, the knowledge to sustain, and a responsibility to preserve our natural resources for future generations."
