There are few wind turbines west of the Missouri River in South Dakota, and some experts say a lack of transmission lines is the main reason. 

A group of energy consultants is raising money to study a potential project that could change that. The $9 billion transmission line would unite the eastern and western power grids of the U.S. with a line traversing southern South Dakota.

The Power from the Prairie project would connect the two U.S. grids (which both have a footprint in South Dakota) with a 4,000-megawatt electric transmission line. That’s enough electricity to power around 4 million homes, according to Robert Schulte, the project’s president and principal at Schulte Associates, an energy consulting firm in North Carolina. He spoke with the South Dakota Wind Energy Association and South Dakota Renewable Energy Association about the project on Sept. 29 in Sioux Falls.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails
    with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me
    from that service? Thank you!

    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I
    was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog?
