KILI radio station to fix wind turbine

RAPID CITY (AP) -- A wind turbine near Porcupine is being rebuilt to power a radio station on the Pine Ridge reservation.

According to media reports, the wind turbine that was supposed to power the KILI radio station near Porcupine but broke down shortly after it was built in 2008.

Officials say it should be rebuilt and running again by the end of the summer.

The wind turbine was intended to be a pilot project to show how wind turbines can save money and power small buildings. It was the first one installed on the reservation.
