South Dakota Solar Energy Projects

Solar Farms in Production
Projects listed only include utility-scale solar farms that have a capacity of 1 MW or greater. Commercial and residential behind-the-meter solar projects are not included on the list. South Dakota currently has one operating utility-scale solar farm and two projects have received permits from the PUC to construct solar facilities that have not yet started construction.

  • The Pierre Solar Project, located in Hughes County, has a capacity of 1 MW and began operation in October of 2016.  The City of Pierre hosts the array on approximately 8.9 acres at the Pierre Regional Airport.  The project was developed by Geronimo Energy and Missouri River Energy Services purchases the energy generated by the project.
