DES MOINES, Iowa — MidAmerican Energy says it will build its next two wind farms in northwest Iowa.

The company says there will be 134 generators at the Ida County site and 104 at the site in O'Brien County, providing a combined capacity of 552 megawatts. The estimated investment for the two projects is $900 million.

A MidAmerican vice president, Mike Gehringer, says that by the end of the year, more of MidAmerican's electricity will come from wind than from any other single source. MidAmerican spokeswoman Ruth Comer says that by the end of 2016, when both projects are completed, the Berkshire Hathaway-owned company will have more than 2,000 wind turbines across Iowa.
