Oglala Lakota College turns to wind energy

Oglala Lakota College on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota is undertaking a one-year study on wind energy.

The school will collect data on wind speed and direction using its $10,000 anemometer tower for a year. The results will be used to determine whether the school could generate its own electricity with a wind turbine.

The privately-funded project isn't the first of its kind on the reservation. The Oglala Sioux Tribe is proposing a $300 million wind farm.
