Lower Brule Sioux Tribe developing wind farm

The Lower Brule Sioux Tribe of South Dakota is working with a California company to build a wind farm.

The tribe and Innovative Investments LLC plan as many as 1,000 wind turbines on the reservation. The tribe would receive 5 percent of the gross electric revenues and could buy electricity to support economic projects.

Eric Greenberg, president of Innovative Investments, said wind in South Dakota could generate 6,000 megawatts of electricity.
