California tribes to host large wind power plant

Two California tribes have plans to host the largest wind power plant in Indian Country.

The Campo Band and Ewiiaapaayp Band have partnered with Superior Renewable Energy, a Texas company. The plan is to build 38 large wind turbines on the tribe's reservations by 2006.

The tribes signed 20-year contracts to receive royalties from power generated by the turbines. Superior plans to sell to San Diego Gas & Electric to provide power to 2,000 homes.
