College brings seventh generation with wind.
The wind blows freely.
On the heels of a U.S. Department of Education Report that named Sitting Bull College as the most affordable College in the United States, the college also completed construction of a new 40ft, 100Kilowatt Wind Turbine to help off-set the school's annual operating costs.
Northern Power leads the way.
In addition to the newly constructed turbine, the college also uses geothermal heating in all the buildings on the new campus, making it one of the most ultramodern campuses in the region.
Fiscal and eco responsibility.
The new wind turbine was connected to the Science and Technology Center in July 2011. It is forecast to save the college approximately $30,000 per year, with any surplus energy sold back to Mor-Gran-Sou, the local rural electric cooperative.
