The White Earth Reservation is taking steps that’ll allow Mother Nature to amp up energy resources for residents living there.


A new wind turbine has recently been erected near the new RTC building on the outskirts of the town of White Earth.

The actual body of the turbine was put up in the middle of December. Currently, installers are working on putting the “guts” of the equipment in place.
