“In evaluating the potential of wind energy generation, Native Americans realize that wind power is not only consistent with our cultural values and spiritual beliefs, it can also be a means of achieving Native sustainable home¬land economies,” said Ronald Neiss, President of the Rosebud Utilities Commission, when the Reservation’s first wind turbine was installed in 2002.

“We are delighted to be arranging $79 million in financing for the Rosebud Wind Facility,” said Jeffrey Sweeney, CEO and Managing Director at US Capital Partners. “The Dakotas are the richest wind region in the world, sometimes called the ‘Saudi Arabia’ of wind power. This 30-megawatt wind farm is designed to reduce greenhouse gases, create local jobs, and provide a large percentage of the renewable resource energy for the region.”
