Shakopee Mdewakanton Raise 386-foot-tall Turbine


A wind turbine as tall as a 38-story building is now standing on Shakopee Mdewakanton (med-WAH'-kuh-tuhn) Sioux Community land in Shakopee. Tribal officials say they'll have the 386-foot-tall turbine operating by later this month. It will operate around the clock, whenever the wind is blowing, and is expected to generate enough energy to meet the community's entire residential demand.
