Renewable Advantage

Wind Generation Initiatives

MidAmerican Energy is continually adding renewable energy to the company's electric generation capabilities, and thanks to voluntary contributions from customers, the company constructed a .5-megawatt wind turbine in 2007 and added various solar installations in 2011. Both projects are near our visitors center at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.

While benefiting all Iowa customers, the wind and solar projects provide fairgoers the opportunity to learn more about renewable energy generation.

Future Renewable Advantage projects may involve wind, solar, biomass, animal waste/methane or other renewable energy technologies, and will be determined by customer interest and participation.

Renewable energy generation:

  • Improves air and water quality
  • Helps prevent power plant and greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reduces dependency on fossil fuels
