Former president Bill Clinton (D) is helping six South Dakota tribe promote a wind energy project.

The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe, the Oglala Sioux Tribe, the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate and the Yankton Sioux Tribe plan to erect wind turbines on their reservations. The $3 billion network could generate at least 1,000 megawatts of electricity, which could be sold on the open market.

“It’ll have a big impact,” Crow Creek Sioux Chairman Brandon Sazue told The Sioux Falls Argus Leader.

Clinton announced the project at a Clinton Global Initiative last week. Former Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-North Dakota) is part of the project.
