Electricity from wind generation on state lands is exempt from the wholesale energy transaction tax of $0.00015/kWh transmitted. Electricity from any source, including renewables, that is generated on a reservation is exempt if it is for delivery out of state.

Electricity generated by a US government agency for delivery outside the state and electricity from any source delivered to members of a cooperative or municipal is exempt from the WET tax.
