Wind Energy from South Fork Wind Farm
More renewable energy resources are on the horizon. Choose to offset your energy usage with renewable energy today.
Turning Wind into Watts
The South Fork Wind Farm, located just north of the Iowa border in Minnesota has been producing renewable power for MPW since 2016. Six state-of-the-art General Electric wind turbines, dedicated to generating power for MPW, can produce up to 13 megawatts (MW) of power, depending on wind conditions, and generates power for homes and businesses. The wind energy generated by the South Fork Wind Farm is just one part of MPW's renewable vision. Currently, the Utility is researching the installation of a utility-scale solar array installation to be located directly in Muscatine.
