ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the contribution of wind power to electricity generation in the U.S. Although the contribution of wind power to the total energy output in the U.S. is only one percent, it is considered to be one of the fastest growing energy technologies in the country. The Rosebud Sioux, the first native-owned wind turbine that was constructed during the late 1980s, meet the demand of electricity in Detroit, Michigan. The Rosebud Sioux have contributed to solve the energy problem and the global warming challenge, and have inspired other Native American nations to explore how to meet their power needs in an environmentally friendly manner.
