At MidAmerican Energy, we are on a mission to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 – all while maintaining the reliability our customers require, at a price they can afford and that technological advances support.
To continue this streak and advance to our net-zero goal, we must continue to invest in wind and solar generation through the recently proposed Wind PRIME project. If approved by the Iowa Utilities Board, the project would add 2,000+ megawatts of wind and 50 megawatts of solar – allowing MidAmerican to meet our goal of delivering 100% renewable energy to our Iowa customers on an ongoing basis.
But, the work doesn’t stop there. To meet net zero, we will also:
- Investigate emerging clean technologies, like energy storage and advanced nuclear power
- Build out transmission infrastructure
- Work with stakeholders to accelerate low-carbon transitions
- Partner with customers to be part of their decarbonization solutions
