Wind Turbine GirlsIt’s interesting how one conversation leads to another.

A few weeks ago I talked to Henry Red Cloud from Lakota Solar Enterprises in Pine Ridge, S.D. This interview showed me the variety of different renewable energy projects happening on reservations in South Dakota.

Red Cloud himself has started his own business and training center, which I talk about more in Henry Red Cloud Returns to Native American Reservation, Starts Business and Renewable Energy Training Center.

Besides his projects in Pine Ridge, S.D., Red Cloud has worked with outside organizations and helped other reservations make use of renewable energy resources, especially wind. Trees, Water and People (TWP) and Intertribal Council on Utility Policy (COUP) have both worked with Red Cloud on energy projects.

While wind energy is now starting to pop up all over the country, Red Cloud is helping tribal communities build turbines of their own.
