The South Dakota Wind Energy Association is holding a membership meeting in Watertown, S.D. on Tuesday. Executive Director Ron Rebenitsch says the meeting at Lake Area Technical Institute provides an opportunity to bring together those people interested in the wind industry and to share the ways wind energy has benefitted South Dakota. Rebenitsch says it also provides a forum to explore the many opportunities that still exist for expanding the industry.
The 9 a.m. meeting will feature several speakers and conclude in the afternoon with the dedication of a 100 kilowatt wind turbine, which will be used as a training tool for Lake Area Tech students.
