Key Partners

Integral to the strength of this project is the level of expertise that we have interviewed, researched and selected to work with us to make certain that this project is completed on time and under budget with the fewest unforeseen issues we can hope for.

Developer

Dakota Plains Energy, Inc., based in nearby Aberdeen, SD, is the developer and managing partner behind this project. Dakota Plains Energy principals have utilized their lifelong relationships with key local citizens to create the cornerstones for this project, and have, over time, built strong relationships within the South Dakota state government to help achieve the goals of this project. Campbell County believed that they had excellent wind potential, and even placed their own anemometer in service over 60 months ago to begin collecting data for development purposes. The county then began to seek a reputable developer who understands the industry, the region and respects their local culture. Dakota Plains Energy was selected as the Project Developer by the Campbell County Landowner’s Association over Just Wind of North Dakota and Florida Power & Light/NextGen Energy (the largest developer of wind projects in the U.S.) of Juno Beach, FL. Dakota Plains Energy was their obvious choice, and over 20,000 acres were acquired through signed Option Agreements with local landowners and their Landowner’s Association.
