ELPC 30 years celebration

Badlands National Park

South Dakota

ELPC works to accelerate renewable energy, protect clean water, and safeguard natural areas under threat in South Dakota, from the Great Plains to the Black Hills.

ELPC advances Farm Bill programs to support clean energy development on farms and ranches. Our early policy leadership helped to advance South Dakota’s wind energy market, which today provides over 70% of the state’s electricity needs. That’s good for job creation, good for economic growth, and good for the environment.
