Who We Are

Seneca Environmental is a renewable energy development and investment company wholly owned by the Seneca Nation. Our mission is to equitably deploy and invest in innovative climate solutions that heal the Earth.

The Seneca Nation is a leader in Native energy, with advanced community wind and solar projects operating to lower the bills of Seneca Nation members and benefit the Nation as a whole.

A division of Seneca Holdings, which delivers over $400M in products and services annually, Seneca Environmental has the size and infrastructure to execute projects of any size.

Seneca Environmental began in early 2022 as Seneca Solar. Our new name, adopted in 2023, better reflects the breadth and scope of our work, which includes Earth-healing climate solutions beyond solar energy projects. Learn more here.

Seneca Environmental is certified under the National Minority Supplier Diversity Council (NMSDC).

Supporting the Seneca Nation

Known as “Keeper of the Western Door,” the Seneca Nation is at the western end of the six nations comprising the Haudenosaunee, or “People of the Longhouse,” a confederacy founded on peace and diplomacy.

The Seneca Nation holds five territories, three retained in the Canandaigua Treaty of 1794 and two reclaimed pursuant to the Seneca Nation Settlement Act of 1994. The Allegany and Cattaraugus Territories are home to nearly half of the 8000+ member Seneca population.

Staunch defenders of their lands and sovereignty, the Seneca Nation has persisted despite immeasurable losses. These include the loss of 10,000 acres in the 1960s construction of the Kinzua Dam by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Despite these obstacles, the Seneca Nation has built an economy and the means to provide for the health, education, and welfare of its people.

Now, the Seneca Nation seeks to invest in meaningful projects and businesses. Returns include partnerships, empowerment, and reinforcement of long-held traditional values.

Doing business with Seneca Environmental directly supports the Seneca Nation. This video grounds our work in the concrete actions the Seneca Nation is taking to help its members, and the community benefits we are helping to create.
