Reservation installs two turbines

Email News Alerts

The White Earth Tribe will soon be harvesting wind energy on the reservation.

Thanks mostly to a federal grant through the Department of Energy, two wind turbines have been installed to help shrink the energy-usage footprint left on the reservation -- one in Naytahwaush and one just south of Waubun.

A congressional appropriation (earmark) led to the Reservation receiving nearly $2 million for the project; the tribe kicked in an additional $500,000.
