Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center (RCREC) is a one-of-a-kind educational facility where tribes from all over the nation can receive hands-on training on renewable energy applications from fellow Native American trainers. To date, over 150 tribal members have received training from LSE, with 40 earning their Solar Technician I certification from RCREC. With their new knowledge and skills, tribal members can return home to start beneficial renewable energy programs and businesses in their own communities.
