Wind XI will consist of multiple sites across Iowa. The company is not asking for a rate increase or assistance from the state to pay for it.
Iowa and MidAmerican's rapid transition from dirty coal to affordable and renewable wind energy offers a clear path for utilities nationwide to make major strides towards 100% clean energy in a way that provides family-supporting jobs and without rate increases. The first and last sites are expected to be placed into service in 2017 and 2019, respectively. The wind farm's location is still to be determined.

Valued at Dollars 3.6 billion, Wind XI is the largest wind project MidAmerican Energy has ever undertaken, it said previously. Thousands of construction workers will be hired during the building phase of the project, and hundreds of new permanent jobs will be created once Wind XI is complete. That's enough wind energy to power 1.6 million homes.
More than 31 percent of Iowa's total electricity generation came from wind, a larger share than any other state, according to the energy administration.
