Iowa has more than 400 wind turbines with total nameplate capacity of more than 423MW. This is enough power to generate electricity for more than 130,000 homesper year and avoid more than 1.3 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually.  Iowa is home to four major wind farms, with a fifth currently in development, including this 80 MW project near Joice with 89 turbines operated by Midwest Renewable Energy Corporation.
