Default MidAmerican Energy Co announces central Iowa wind farm

DES MOINES (AP) — Iowa’s largest power utility has announced it will begin construction of a wind farm in Grundy County.

MidAmerican Energy Co. said in a news release Thursday that construction of the Ivester wind farm will begin later this month. It’s expected to be completed by the end of the year.

The Ivester project is projected to add 90.8 megawatts of wind generation capacity for MidAmerican customers. That’s enough to power more than 38,000 average homes in Iowa.

MidAmerican says the wind farm will add $875,000 in estimated average annual property taxes in Grundy County, in addition to construction, long-term operations and maintenance jobs.

The project is part of MidAmerican Energy’s $3.6 billion Wind XI project announced in 2016.
