Navajo energy firm partners with Provo’s Humless

First Published Oct 17 2012 08:51 am • Last Updated Oct 17 2012 06:48 pm

Big Navajo Energy, a Navajo owned renewable energy company, said it is partnering with Provo-based Humless to bring solar-battery based power systems to more than 18,000 families on the Navajo reservation that do not have electricity.

Humless, a division of Food for Health International, produces a lithium battery-based "generator" that can be used as a primary or secondary source of electricity. The battery can be recharged using solar panels.

The Navajo Nation is located in southeastern Utah, northeastern Arizona and northwestern New Mexico.

"It is very difficult to access power of any sort on parts of our reservation. The generators that Humless offers will provide a welcome solution for our people," Dory Peters, president of Big Navajo Energy, said in a statement announcing the partnership.
