MITCHELL, S.D. (AP)--A Colorado businessman said a wind farm being proposed on the Crow Creek Indian Reservation is going forward.
Paul McMenaman with Winterhawk Energy and Development Corp. said he's looking for a buyer for the electricity produced by 222 wind turbines.
He said the turbines could be operating in late 2011 or early 2012.
A member of the tribal council, Peter Lengkeek, told the Daily Republic newspaper that a group on the reservation is working to stop the project because the tribe would get a disproportionally small share of the profits.
