        power and do not have adequate electric power service;
            (2) purchase and install distributed power generating 
        facilities, including small gas turbines, fuel cells, solar 
        photovoltaic systems, solar thermal systems, geothermal 
        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
            (5) support other activities that the Secretary of Energy 
        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 
of the five succeeding years, the Secretary of Energy shall submit a 
report to Congress on the status of the programs and the progress 
towards meeting its goal under subsection (a).
