The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska has become the solar power leader in the Midwest, according to a report by AP News. The tribe boasts 400 kW of installed solar panels, more than nearly any other Midwestern American Indian tribe. 

Many tribes are located in areas where there are significant renewable energy resources. They started the push towards renewable energy over a decade ago in an effort to take advantage of the ample amount of both land and sunshine needed for solar power.
