Cheyenne River Lakota Sioux Developing 120 MW Wind Farm

The Cheyenne River Lakota Sioux are partnering with Boston energy organization Citizens Wind to develop a 120-MW wind farm on their land in South Dakota.

The project will cost $400 million, take three years to build and how much is levitra is expected to provide electricity for 50,000-60,000 homes. Beyond the environmental benefits, the Sioux are hoping the how to safely buy viagra online project will bring some much-needed economic relief and jobs to their tribe. If the project is successful, it could be a blueprint for other tribes to follow.

This project is just one of women levitra a few wind projects Citizens Wind is planning with Native American groups. They are also working with the Cree Nation of Mistissini in Quebec, the Ojibwe in Ontario and the Navajo Nation.

Is it wise to allow power to be tribaliz
written by steelhawk, March 17, 2009
Is investment of vast sums of money on tribal/racial criteria a sound practice? Somehow I don't think so.
Excellent news

The way that Citizens Energy is taking advantage of the scale-ability of Wind Power to work with local communities to develop wind power resources is very promising news indeed.

Any indication of how much additional capacity the current grid can handle moving wind from the how much levitra Great Plains to the Northeast Coast?

What's the current state of canadian viagra sales grid upgrade plans?

I am all for the online pharmacies viagra idea and all for the tribes making such investments in the future for their own good - everyone wins.

Two questions please:
120 mW * 1000 = kW or 120,000 kW
for 60,000 homes that is 2 kW per home?

3.33 million dollars per mW seems high - is it?
Great news

@steelhawk - tribal basis is a great basis for investing. The ONLY hold up for wind power is NIMBY (not in my back yard). No one wants these things in their back yard; or within 10 miles of their back yard. Understandably, because they get fractionally cheaper (and greener) power but potentially lose a lot of value in their homes. In the case of tribes, they own the land and can do whatever they want. They get all of the upside, which is fine by me because I want green power IEBY (in everyone's back yard).
Ecofriendly alternatives on the plains.

As someone who is from South Dakota, I don't believe many people realize that South Dakota has three of the poorest counties in the nation, all within Indian Reservations. This is a wonderful way for the tribes to be helping the environment and their families and tribes building their local economies and buy real viagra online such. Wind turbines vs. Casinos, which are you honestly going to prefer? Plus the energy is free, and anyone who has been to west-river SD, knows there is a LOT of land. And Richard is correct, it is up to their discretion on usage. They receive revenue and the homes on the best choice generic viagra professional the grid cheaper, cleaner energy.

Steelhawk, if you still disagree with this and have another positive alternative to helping the Lakota Sioux and plains tribes...please share.

Seems like a classic example of i use it women viagra clean energy leading to green jobs. Presumably local Indian workers would be hired and trained for installation and maintenance, and could be an ongoing career as wind farms expand.

$3/W is a little high, usually costs are $1-2/W peak capacity, but maybe this includes transmission lines. The cost/W will be higher or lower depending on the average wind speed. According to the NREL wind resource maps, there are fair to just try! cialis 100 excellent categories of energy, and some in the outstanding category outside the reservation. Some good resources on wind cost are with this nifty calculator at
From the Tribal Perspective

I am a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe in South Central, South Dakota. We have also been looking at Alternative Energy sources such as wind power especially here in South Dakota were it seems the wind never stops. The tribe usually have to just through more obstacles than other government entities due to state requlations, BIA, Federal and Tribal govt issues. As well as political, Tribes need to convince the electric cooperatives to go along with this type of energy. I have had a windpowered turbine at my house for three years and yet I still pay and electric bill even when I am giving back to the grid.
Racial issues usually have two sides. It is in the middle where we find the answer. Government redtape and other issues seem to dominate when trying to find green or eco friendly alternatives. I hope that changes soon.
