        facilities, including small gas turbines, fuel cells, solar

        systems, wind power systems, or biomass-fueled systems;
            (3) purchase and install other equipment associated with 
        the generation, transmission, distribution, and storage of 
        electric power;
            (4) provide training in the installation, operation, or 
        maintenance of the lines, facilities, or equipment in 
        paragraphs (1) through (3); or

        determines are necessary to meet the goal of the program.
    (c) Technical Support.--At the request of the Navajo Nation, the 
Secretary of Energy may provide technical support through Department of 
Energy laboratories and facilities to the Navajo Nation to assist in 
achieving the goal of this program.
    (d) Annual Reports.--Not later than February 1, 2002 and for each
