Apex Clean Energy Helps Sioux Nation Invest in Wind Power

Apex Clean Energy has a great story about the Sioux Nation investing in wind power. Check out the video, below, which explains how "the winds that blow across millions of acres of tribal land in South Dakota are some of the strongest in the country," and how "[s]ix tribes of the Sioux Nation united to form the Oceti Sakowin Power Authority (OSPA) with hopes of harnessing that wind to generate clean energy and a brighter, more independent future." According to Apex Clean Energy, "The wind farms will contribute millions of dollars to the tribes and create jobs on the reservations, preserving the health, sovereignty, and culture of the Sioux Nation for years to come." And wind power, of course, is a 100% renewable, clean energy source, unlike the polluting, finite oil transported via the Dakota Access Pipeline, which the Standing Rock Sioux and others have fought for years.
