Harvesting the Power of the Plains

Our Mission: To harvest the power of the plains through wind and solar development for all income levels.

Why Choose Us:

The only South Dakota-based utility-scale wind farm developer, Dakota Plains Energy, DPE, is headquartered in Aberdeen with a satellite office in Nisswa, MN. Dakota Plains Energy values its long-standing relationships with South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa communities, and offers an understanding and respect of rural and small town sensibilities combined with expertise in rural energy project management. We will help envision, develop, finance and advise on energy renewable projects.

A major goal of Dakota Plains Energy is “Revitalizing Rural America” through wind and solar energy, and other renewable energy methods in the Midwest communities we serve. A reduction in local school closures and a reversal of the relocation of the Great Plains’ finest young adults will result in further growth and rejuvenation of our rural communities.

DPE, envisions, develops, and consults with rural communities to help build a stronger connection.

Dakota Plains evolved from years of real estate development projects. We are the only major wind farm developer in the Upper Midwest who can also bring affordable permanent and temporary housing to the communities in which we build projects.

In addition to its activities as a wind and solar farm developer, Dakota Plains Development is actively involved in retail housing developments and is actively seeking additional opportunities in the Dakotas, Minnesota and Iowa.
