WESTERN AREA POWER ADMINISTRATION
Western Area Power Administration markets and delivers reliable, cost-based hydroelectric power and related services within a 15-state region of the Central and Western U.S. We’re one of four power marketing administrations within the U.S. Department of Energy. Our role is to market and transmit electricity from multi-use water projects. Our transmission system carries electricity from 57 power plants operated by the Bureau of Reclamation, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the International Boundary and Water Commission. Together, these plants have an operating capacity of 8,785 megawatts.
THE COUNCIL OF ENERGY RESOURCE TRIBES (CERT)
Indian Tribes founded CERT out of necessity and a profound sense of collective self-confidence, the confidence that Tribes could chart a new course of prudent development that would address Tribal priorities and values while contributing to a more secure energy future for all Americans.
The purpose of the ITCA is to provide the member tribes with the means for action on matters that affect them collectively and individually, promote tribal sovereignty and strengthen tribal governments.
Mohave Valley and Fort Mojave are located on the Colorado River, at the western edge of Arizona. We are bordered on the west by the states of Nevada and California and on the east by the Black Mountains of Arizona; located in what is referred to generally as the low desert, an area of warmth and sun, low relative humidity, and scant rainfall. This virtually smog-free, dry, and hot climate creates a very desirable environment for the residents of the area.
