Rural connections.

The U.S. Energy Department announced $366 million worth of projects to connect rural communities and Tribal areas across 20 states and 30 Tribal Nations with clean and affordable energy.

The projects range from installing microgrids at rural community health clinics, revitalizing a hydroelectric dam in Alaska and powering rural Hopi and Navajo communities with clean solar power.
