Our Generation Mix
At the end of 2014 , MidAmerican Energy had 7,980 megawatts of owned and contracted generating capacity. Approximately 42 percent was fueled by coal; 37 percent by wind; 17 percent by natural gas and oil; and 4 percent by nuclear, hydroelectric and other energy sources.

In May 2013, MidAmerican Energy announced the Wind VIII project to build up to 1,050 megawatts of new wind generation at project sites in Grundy, Madison, Marshall, O’Brien and Webster counties in Iowa. The company followed that with the October 2014 announcement to add 161 megawatts of wind generation at project sites in Adams and O’Brien counties. When both projects are complete, MidAmerican Energy will have approximately 3,500 megawatts of wind generation capacity in Iowa – enough to power the equivalent of more than 1 million average Iowa households.

The company continues to install state-of-the-art technologies to reduce emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter at its coal-fueled facilities.
