To raise awareness and provide resources to educate the public and government representatives on industrial wind energy’s real impacts including health issues, the environment, property values, wildlife and our overall quality of life.  



SDSRRE is a South Dakota non-profit community service organization. The group was formed in 2017 and received its official legal status in 2018. The organization grew from just a few people across eastern South Dakota, to now representing people in 20 counties.  This organization has grown rapidly because of over 30 industrial wind projects planned for South Dakota. Unless renewable energy in our state is “safe and responsible”, the good life of rural living in South Dakota will be destroyed for tens of thousands.

About the Book


Gregg Hubner, farmer and real estate professional has studied Wind Energy since 2010. In 2017 with the help of his son Jamin, they wrote a book called Paradise Destroyed: The Destruction of Rural Living by the Wind Energy Scam.  Gregg’s purpose in writing the book was to help educate people that live in the Midwest about the real reasons wind energy projects are built, who profits most from them, and what landowners should know if they are contemplating signing a wind easement. Hubner recounts his personal experience of wind energy colonization and shares his knowledge of just how much damage wind farms can cause property and property-owners. Paradise Destroyed is an absolute must-read. Available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
