MidAmerican Energy Completes Work on Three Wind Farms

MidAmerican Energy completed work on four of the five wind farms that make up its 1,050-MW Wind VIII project. The three wind farms completed in 2014 - Lundgren in Webster County, Macksburg in Madison County and Wellsburg in Grundy County - account for a total of 511.4 MW of wind generation capacity, to go along with the 44.6 MW of generation capacity at the Vienna II wind farm in Marshall County, which was completed in 2013. The final piece of the Wind VIII project - the 495-MW Highland wind farm in O'Brien County - will be finished by the end of 2015.
