(Window Rock, AZ)-The Navajo Nation Energy Office will host a series of public meetings to consider the use of energy and future development of the Navajo Nation’s energy resources.

The first public meeting was held at the Nenahnezad Chapter house yesterday. Today’s meeting will take place in Shonto, Arizona from 4 to 8 p.m. Public Meetings will continue throughout the week in Cameron at Dzel Libei School on June 24 from 4 to 8 p.m., Arizona State University Memorial Union 2nd floor on June 29 from 6 to 9 p.m., Howard Johnson in Gallup, NM on June 29 from 6 to 9 p.m., and at the University of New Mexico SUB Theater on June 30 from 6 to 9 p.m.

This public forum will provide an opportunity for interested citizens to learn more about the Navajo Nation 2011 Energy Policy. The Navajo Energy Office developed a long-term Strategic Energy Plan designed to stimulate increased revenues from energy projects, spur energy infrastructure development, and diversify the Navajo energy economy.  

The Plan includes opportunities for competitive business and to attract private investors to energy projects. It also addresses how the Nation will strategically engage key governmental and community representatives on Navajo energy projects, and reviews the potential of all available energy resources.

The Energy Policy serves to guide our leaders as they consider specific legislation, rules and regulations, energy strategies, board resolutions, management policies, programs and decisions related to energy in and around the Nation.
