Rosebud Sioux Wind Project Completed

April 2003 - The Intertribal Council on Utility Policy (COUP) and the Rosebud Tribal Utility Commission announced the completion of a 750-kW wind turbine on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation in South Dakota, making it the first utility-scale wind energy project to be wholly owned and operated by a tribe. The tribe is selling the green energy certificates generated from the project to Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota and NativeEnergy, a Vermont-based company that markets renewable energy certificates to residential and business customers nationwide. The formal project dedication is scheduled for May 1.
