MidAmerican Energy Company plans to build a new wind farm in Poweshiek County. This is the third site in Iowa selected for construction as part of the Wind XI project. MidAmerican Energy has begun construction activity on the North English wind farm, with completion scheduled for December 2018.
The North English wind farm is part of MidAmerican Energy’s Wind XI project and will add up to 170 new wind turbines with a combined capacity of 340MW. The company is working with developers, county officials and landowners at potential wind farm sites in other Iowa counties for the balance of the Wind XI project. Construction on these projects will start in 2018 and 2019, and sites will be announced at a later date. Altogether, the US$ 3.6 billion Wind XI project will consist of up to 1,000 wind turbines and 2,000MW of wind generation capacity in Iowa when complete in December 2019.
