The wind farm near White would develop enough electricity for 80,000 homes. South Dakota's largest wind farm is now located near Highmore. It has 27 turbines.

The much-larger Brookings County wind farm would be five times as large and produce 200 megawatts of juice. It's scheduled to be operational in December of next year.

A federal study has ranked South Dakota as second in the nation in terms of wind power potential.
