Why Seneca Solar?

Maximize Earth-Healing and Community Benefits

As a Tribally owned business, Seneca Solar specializes in helping Native communities deliver renewable energy projects.

Your community is like no other. Seneca Solar designs strategies to meet your specific goals. Starting from wherever you are in your journey, we will work together to determine your unique needs, assess opportunities, and develop a plan tailored to your community.

Our creative, innovative approach enables us to develop Earth-healing strategies that exceed your goals — helping you maximize your positive impact and community benefits as part of an equitable clean energy transition.

  • You can trust Seneca Solar to put your needs first.

    We offer a new way of doing business that flips the old, extractive model. We combine a deep appreciation of Tribal sovereignty with a flexible approach that prioritizes your needs and goals.

  • You can rely on our size and experience to deliver.

    We understand the opportunities and complexities of Native enterprise. We have the infrastructure, financial stability, and experience to achieve successful project and community outcomes.

  • You can make a bigger impact while enjoying greater benefits.

    We look beyond the standard approaches to energy projects to add features that benefit people and heal the Earth — we call these “+1s.”

How We Can Help You

Tribes have unprecedented new opportunities to meet their energy needs and generate income through renewable energy projects. But federal programs to support Tribes are still in development and mostly untested. Seneca Solar can help you navigate the complex options to benefit from these programs.

Working together, we can help define and support your energy goals. Depending on your goals and needs, we can support you to:

  • Host renewable energy projects and receive income.
  • Own renewable energy projects for long-term economic development.

Ways We Can Work Together to
Create an Equitable Renewable Energy Future

  • Help define and support your energy goals.

  • Set you up to host a renewable energy project and receive income.

  • Support you in becoming an owner of renewable energy projects for long-term economic development.
