When complete in 2019, the $3.6 billion MidAmerican Energy Wind XI project will add up to 2,000 megawatts of capacity, and produce enough wind energy to power more than 840,000 average Iowa homes. MidAmerican has built over 2,000 wind turbines.

MidAmerican Energy Company, Iowa’s largest energy company, provides electric service to 732,000 customers and natural gas service to 714,000 customers in Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, and South Dakota. It is headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa.
