MidAmerican Energy Company has announced construction of two new Iowa wind farm projects to begin this summer in Adair County. The Arbor Hill wind farm project includes 125 wind turbines. The Orient wind farm project includes 150 turbines with the option to add up to 100 more.
Both are part of the company’s previously announced Wind XI project
. The 275 turbines, manufactured by Vestas Wind Systems A/S, will add 550MW of wind generation capacity for MidAmerican Energy customers. Crews are scheduled to begin construction on both projects in June. Arbor Hill and Orient will add to MidAmerican Energy’s three existing wind farms in Adair County: Adair, Morning Light and Rolling Hills.
