PORCUPINE, S.D. (AP) - Airmen from the South Dakota Air National Guard are working with members of the Denmark Army to build and install solar panels on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

The solar panel structure is being built at the Thunder Valley Community Development Center near Porcupine. Engineers from the National Guard’s 114th Fighter Wing from Sioux Falls are working with the Denmark Army as part of the Golden Coyote Training Exercise.

The project is part of an effort to create a sustainable community for area residents. The solar panel structure will be connected between two buildings, which will provide power and also serve as a canopy for an outdoor classroom.

Community Engagement Coordinator Andrew Iron Shell says the support of the engineers is helping bring the vision to life.
