#Wind provided energy for 100% of @MidAm_EnergyCo's Iowa customers for two days last week

Wind power reportedly provided 100% of the power for MidAmerican Energy Co.’s Iowa customers last Monday and Tuesday. According to a local report from KCCI , the Des Moines, Iowa-headquartered energy company says wind supplied energy for all 670,000 of its customers in the state on the particularly windy days. Tina Hoffman, a MidAmerican spokesperson, told KCCI that wind is “one of the great resources in Iowa, and what we are able to do is use that to provide electricity for customers.” The company recently announced it would be upgrading hundreds of its older wind turbines in Iowa in order to extend the life of the machines. In total, MidAmerican serves 760,000 electric customers and 742,000 natural gas customers in Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska and South Dakota.
