South Dakota is a state rich in clean, renewable energy sources. We have a strong ethanol industry, but several other under-developed resources such as bio-diesel, cellulosic, and switch grasses. South Dakota has, according to the US Department of Energy, good-to-excellent wind energy resources throughout the state and prominent excellent-to-outstanding areas in over half the state! Wind energy alone also provides more jobs per dollar invested than any other energy resource. Yet at this time South Dakota has no legislated goals towards utilization of renewable energy resources. The potential here for the creation of jobs, industry and income is incredible. The time to do this is NOW!
