Description
Excerpt: Wind turbine on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. EPA Region 8 is finding new ways to encourage the development of clean and renewable energy resources. EPA's participation in a multi-agency environmental justice pilot led to the dedication of this 750-kW unit in 2003. EPA and federal partners provided support to the Rosebud Sioux and the Intertribal Council on Utility Policy (ICOUP), a confederation of Northern Great Plains tribes, to harness wind energy for tribal economic development. Today, the turbine produces enough electricity to serve about 300 to 350 homes, more than two million kilowatt-hours per year. The Tribe is anticipating the sale of excess energy that it generates for local use, with a multi-year sale of green power to Ellsworth Air Force Base, near Rapid City.
