            (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

        determines are necessary to meet the goal of the program.

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.
