Renewable Energy Leader
MidAmerican Energy is a recognized leader in the use and development of renewable energy. The company is the No. 1 owner of wind-powered generation among U.S. rate-regulated utilities.
In 2013, MidAmerican Energy solidified its No. 1 ranking when it announced plans to invest up to $1.9 billion to expand its wind generation fleet and add up to 1,050-megawatts of wind generation in Iowa by year-end 2015
When the expansion is complete, 3,335 megawatts, or approximately 37 percent, of MidAmerican Energy’s total owned generation capacity will come from energy generated by the company’s 1,715 owned wind turbines.
The wind projects foster economic development while demonstrating the company’s commitment to renewable energy and environmental respect.
Customer Commitment and Satisfaction
MidAmerican Energy offers competitive pricing, multiple billing and payment options and numerous energy efficiency programs to help its customers and provides ongoing support to the communities it serves.
In 2013, MidAmerican Energy ranked first in its segment in the Midwest Region in J.D. Power’s commercial gas, residential electric and residential gas customer satisfaction studies.
Demonstrating Environmental Respect
MidAmerican Energy proactively engages in emissions-reduction projects.
Several years ago, MidAmerican Energy began implementing a plan to install environmental improvements at its coal-fueled generation plants, which aligned with existing and anticipated requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
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.
