The Energy demands of the metropolitan Phoenix and Tucson regions have been supplied with fresh clean water and electricity at the cost of the indigenous communities that lay along mining operations, power plants, and water ways. These places are considered a sacrificial must in order to keep resources to continually be fed at a cheap cost to the cities.
Navajo Generating Station provides 1/5th of the electricity for the Central Arizona Project, which provides water to the valley. CAP water costs $120/acre foot for Phoenix and $60/acre foot for valley farmers (an acre foot=325,835 gallons). Alternately in Northern Arizona, an acre foot runs $1,000 and in the Nation, which has the lowest water use per capita in the US, $5,000.
