Sioux Wind

Imagine a future where America's energy security is strengthened through an increasing use of clean, renewable energy. Imagine that by creating that future, we also improve the lives and economic conditions of thousands of Native American families for generations to come. Our rally endeavors to make that bold vision a reality, and you have the opportunity to play an important role in our success.

In an unprecedented partnership, eight Sioux Tribes in South Dakota have joined forces to form a Multi-Tribal Power Authority that will develop significant wind energy projects on tribal lands and sell the power for commercial use. The result will be one of the largest utility-grade wind installations in the country, generating over a gigawatt of power and more than doubling the amount of wind power produced currently in South Dakota. The initiative was announced as a Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action during the 2013 Clinton Global Initiative America (CGI America) meeting where the Tribes were joined by their partners, including Senator Byron Dorgan from the law firm Arent Fox and the Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.

While the majority of the costs for the project (approx. $1.75 - 3 billion) will be paid through bonds issued by the Power Authority, we are rallying to raise the funds necessary to complete the planning process. Your support, therefore, is critical to unlocking this significant opportunity for the Tribes. Please join us.
