Solar power in South Dakota

Solar panels

Solar power in South Dakota on rooftops can provide 25% of all electricity used in South Dakota.[1] The state is ranked 14th in the country in solar power potential, and 4th in wind potential.[2]

Offering net metering is required by federal law, but South Dakota is one of only four states to not have adopted a statewide policy on net metering, which means it needs to be negotiated with the utility.[3][4]
