Wind Energy

Wind turbines use the kinetic energy of the wind to create renewable energy.

Wind power is truly clean power. You could think of it as a form of solar power—wind simply moves excess heat around, either away from the surface of the Earth, where sunlight causes a buildup of energy, or from warm regions (usually the tropics) to cooler regions (usually the higher latitudes). Wind power displaces fossil fuel-based power, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

NativeEnergy’s first Help Build™ carbon project was the Alex Little Soldier Wind Turbine in South Dakota. It was the first tribally owned large-scale wind turbine in the U.S. Since then, our customers have helped build numerous wind projects with strong social benefits.
