Pierre - South Dakota's existing wind projects represent only a tiny fraction of the potential energy that could be derived from wind in the state. With a world class wind resource ranking in the top five states in the nation, South Dakota and the nation would benefit tremendously from the continued development of this energy resource.
This along with several other industry related topics will be the platform during the Annual South Dakota Wind Energy Association Annual Meeting taking place on Nov. 29 at Mitchell Technical Institute, located at 1800 Spruce Street.
The theme for this year's conference is Which Way is the Wind Blowing? and will look at the future of wind in South Dakota, with feature sessions on Wind Energy Today, a session from the Governor's Office of Economic Development and a Government Policy Panel featuring a staff member from each representative's office.
The event begins at 9:30 a.m. with a welcome and presidents address by Jeff Nelson, SDWEA Board President/East River Electric Power Cooperative General Manager and runs through 3 p.m. with a tour of Mitchell Tech adjourning the event.
Ron Rebenitsch, SDWEA Executive Director, encourages anyone interested in wind development to attend this annual meeting, which will provide local, regional and national insights into wind energy opportunities.
The South Dakota Wind Energy Association is a voluntary trade association that supports the development of wind energy as a sustainable, economic, and environmentally friendly resource for all of South Dakota.
