Wind to Power Ames and Iowa State University

December 29, 2009 by · 3 Comments 

In January, the city of Ames and Iowa State University will start buying wind-generated electricity from a farm near Zearing. The NextEra Energy farm has 100-turbines and a 150 MW capacity. wind-farm-iowa

According to officials, the plan is to buy enough wind power to supply 30 MW of output for Ames and six MW for the university. Those figures represent 15 percent of Ames’ electricity needs and about 10 percent of the university’s.
