New wind farm begins operation
As a utility committed to making our community a better place to live and work, we recognize our shared responsibility to help achieve a cleaner energy future. One of the ways we’re working to meet this responsibility is through the increased use of clean, renewable wind power.
We’re pleased to report that our power supply mix now includes more wind energy thanks to the addition of a new resource. Early this year, our power supplier, Wisconsin Public Power Inc. (WPPI), began receiving 50 megawatts of wind energy from the Top of Iowa II wind farm.
Located near Kensett, Iowa, the Top of Iowa II facility is expected to supply WPPI’s member utilities with enough electricity to power the needs of approximately 16,000 homes each year.
