Iowa growing wind power

With all the health problems associated with coal-fired power plants, it is great to see another wind energy project begin in Iowa. Not only will MidAmerican be bringing new jobs into Iowa, it will also be replacing that much need for coal produced energy. That will help make Iowa a healthier place to live again.

Wind farm projects are already exporting our wind energy to other states. Expanding that is a good way to increase revenue being brought into the state.

With the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency having just announced a time line for regulation of coal-fired power plants, Iowa needs to be welcoming and encouraging more wind farm projects like this so we are ahead of the curve in the future.
