Our Generation Mix
At the end of 2013, MidAmerican Energy had 8,013 megawatts of owned and contracted generating capacity. Approximately 45 percent was fueled by coal; 30 percent by wind; 19 percent by natural gas and oil; and 6 percent by nuclear, hydroelectric and other energy sources.

In 2013, MidAmerican Energy announced plans to invest up to $1.9 billion to expand its wind generation fleet and add up to 1,050-megawatts of wind generation in Iowa by year-end 2015. When the expansion is complete, 3,335 megawatts, or approximately 39 percent, of MidAmerican Energy’s total owned generation capacity will come from energy generated by the company’s 1,715 owned wind turbines.

The company continues to install state-of-the-art technologies to reduce emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter at its coal-fueled facilities.
