The open plains of South Dakota symbolize more than our state’s natural splendor; they beckon a future powered by the winds that sweep across them.
South Dakota’s investment in wind energy promises a future where jobs in turbine manufacturing, installation, and maintenance become a significant part of our employment landscape.
With an abundance of sunshine gracing our state, South Dakota is poised to become a significant player in the solar energy sector. Both large-scale solar installations and small-scale decentralized solutions promise a range of job opportunities, from design to maintenance.
