Iowa invests $1B in new wind farms

Iowans can expect to get half a billion watts of new clean electricity after the state’s governor signed a $1 billion deal to expand Iowa’s wind energy operations.

The deal will result in the largest wind farm project for Alliant Energy, the public utility holding company that will build and operate the farm. Currently, Alliant owns and operates 1,200 megawatts (mW) of wind-generated energy in Iowa under its Interstate Power and Light utility.

When completed, the new project is expected to produce an additional 500mW of wind-generated electricity, enough to power 215,000 homes.
