South Dakota Recovery Act State Memo

South Dakota has substantial natural resources, including biomass, wind, geothermal, and hydroelectric power. The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is making a meaningful down payment on the nation’s energy and environmental future. The Recovery Act investments in South Dakota are supporting a broad range of clean energy projects, from energy efficiency to smart grid and geothermal power. Through these investments, South Dakota’s businesses, the University of South Dakota, non‐profits, and local governments are creating quality jobs today and positioning South Dakota to play an important role in the new energy economy of the future.
