Iowa To Triple Wind Energy

April 21, 2006, 7:48 AM by News Staff

Iowa To Triple Wind Energy
Iowa's largest energy company is expanding its stake in wind energy. MidAmerican Energy has received the OK from state regulators to add up to 545 megawatts of wind-driven electrical power.

The company currently operates 360 megawatts of wind energy farms in northern Iowa, which can produce enough electricity to power 100,000 homes. The new projects can generate enough energy for up to 200,000 more customers.

The first phase of the expansion, which includes 66 wind turbines, will be built in Carroll and Crawford counties, and is scheduled to be finished this year. Details of additional installations aren't finalized.

The state approved the plan on the condition that MidAmerican not raise its electricity rates in Iowa until 2010.

Iowa is the third largest producer of wind energy, behind California and Texas.
