We should not be surprised that there would be two sides to this issue considering the recent history regarding energy projects in the general area.

A very large wind project is proposed in the Beresford area and the gathering of investors will soon begin.  Much like the scuttled Hyperion Energy refinery a few miles south near Elk Point there is opposition to the movement.

The battle played out on KSOO’s Viewpoint University Thursday afternoon.  Brian Manish was a scheduled guest that was touting his support of the Dakota Community Wind Farm Project.  The proposed wind farm would house approximately 300-500 turbines.

While listening to the program, Student Dean James chimed in to voice his disapproval and tout his We Care SD organization.  Mr. James is not opposed to wind energy, but has reservation about the proposed location of the towers.

You’ve got to love the immediacy of radio.
