Kayenta II Solar
Kimley-Horn led the design for the 28-megawatt Kayenta II Solar project in Arizona with the goal of bringing electricity to residents that previously did not have access to it.
Built on the Navajo Nation, the largest Native American reservation in the U.S., Kimley-Horn worked directly with the Navajo tribe on the second phase of the Kayenta Solar project. Kimley-Horn provided services such as:
- Site Civil Engineering and Construction Documents
- Hydrology Studies
- Construction Support
One of the Navajo residents, Neda Billie, shared with NPR that her family had previously used propane lanterns to light her one-room hogan. With this new solar project, families like the Billies on the reservation can pump water, charge their phones, store food, and connect to the internet.
