A Step-By-Step Guide for Sovereign States’ Businesses

Operating a tribal nation’s business has a unique set of challenges, but there are a few things you can do to make sure your energy expenses don’t become one of them—and we’d like to help.

With insights gained through working with the Native American Alliance, a Southern California Edison (SCE) employee-based fundraising group representing 17 tribes, we’ve put together a plan to help empower business owners like you take the first step toward making your business more energy efficient.

Since energy is something that can’t be seen, it can be hard to visualize where potential savings may lie. But with our help, many business owners operating in sovereign states are finding ways to conserve energy and create a path to a better future for Southern California. We hope you will, too.

Step 1: Analyze Your Power

It all begins by understanding how your business currently uses energy and developing a strategy to better manage your usage. Once a plan is in place, it will work behind the scenes to help make your business more energy efficient, and can help save you time, money, and resources.
