Check this out: Net-Zero Energy Homes for Indians in South Dakota

Thank God for people who put their skills and knowledge to good use for the benefit of strangers.

A local nonprofit, Thunder Valley Community Development Center, located in the Pine Ridge Reservation of the Oglala Sioux Indians joined with University of Colorado Boulder’s Native American Sustainable Housing Initiative and South Dakota’s college students to design and create affordable housing which holds up in the South Dakota prairie as well as has reduced utility costs. They are specifically designed with the Indian population in mind, including open floor plans for multigenerational living.
