#1 in Wind Energy
An Engine for Wind Generation
Iowa placed a strong focus on wind energy before it became trendy. It started with forward-thinking policy, was augmented by the state’s business-friendly approach and has succeeded due to an all-in, collective effort. Now, Iowa generates more electricity from wind than any other state and is a major reason why companies like Google, Facebook and Microsoft have chosen Iowa for energy-intensive facilities. Bottom line, if low-cost, reliable, renewable energy is important to your company—Iowa is the location for your next expansion.
