Standing Rock Sioux seek developer for 235-MW wind farm

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is courting developers to help build a 235-MW wind farm within its borders.

The Native American nation has identified a site near Fort Yates, N.D., and built access roads in order to show progress so that it can capture equity from the federal production tax credit, said Joseph McNeil, general manager of the SAGE Development Authority, a public power authority the Standing Rock Sioux recently set up.
