As a step toward the long-term goal of reducing their carbon footprint to zero, the Forest County Potawatomi are developing solar and biogas systems to power their tribal facilities in Milwaukee and generate electricity they can sell to the local utility. The first project is a 30 kW solar system on the roof of the tribal administration building that was funded in part by a Department of Energy Community Renewable Energy Deployment grant. The second is a 2 MW anaerobic digester and biogas generation facility that turns waste from food processing into enough electricity to power 1,500 homes.
