In 2012 the Pascua Yaqui Tribe received funding from the Department of Energy to conduct a Renewable Energy Development and Deployment Feasibility Study. This study looked at the economic and technical viability for commercial and community scale renewable energy projects on the 6,289 acres of Tortuga Ranch, primarily to identify an optimal location for a 1 MW solar installation. The Casino Del Sol, government facilities, and other buildings have been identified as potential projects.
