May 25, 2016


MidAmerican Energy says it's built the largest land-based wind turbine in the United States in Adams County, Iowa.

The 379-foot tall, 2.415-megawatt reinforced concrete turbine is a prototype that MidAmerican Energy plans to use to evaluate the additional amount of wind energy at higher altitudes. With the turbine's blades fully extended, the structure will be 557-feet tall - about 51 stories.
