Wind Energy Conference Provides Research-based Information

Iowa is the 10th windiest state in the nation and has more than 600 wind turbines that generate enough energy for 140,000 average Iowa residential customers. Conferences are a good way to learn about wind energy and wind turbines plus get research-based information to make financial decisions.

Iowa is the second largest producer of wind energy in the United States, just behind Texas. Iowa’s topography and electric transmission lines combine for a wind energy friendly environment.

Iowa State University Extension helps provide research-based information about wind energy to farmers, landowners and businesses so they can make good choices for the future. Extension staff helped conduct a recent wind energy conference in northwest Iowa.
