Mandan, Hidatsa, & Arikara Nation WindHB

With the help of NativeEnergy, the Mandan, Hidata, and Arikara Nation Built a 60 kW turbine. 

NativeEnergy’s customers helped build a new 60 kW single turbine on the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation reservation in North Dakota. In anticipation of support from NativeEnergy, this turbine was constructed in September 2005 and was fully commissioned in early October.

This single turbine project is the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation’s first step in wind development.
