Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe Health Clinic

Nixon, Nevada

In April 2009, Black Rock Solar completed the first phase of solar panels for the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe at the medical clinic in Nixon, Nevada.  The array generates enough electricity to save the clinic $7,000 per year, money that is used to improve care for patients and provide better health resources for the Paiute community.

During this project, Black Rock Solar provided the opportunity for two members of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe to learn about solar power and train as apprentices during the installation.  One of those men, Wakan Waci “Konch” Blindman is now a fully licensed solar installer.
