MPW - a local leader in clean energy

The renewable vision

MPW first included renewable energy into our power portfolio in 2016 with the incorporation of wind energy provided by the South Fork Wind Farm.   Since then, generating power using renewable energy resources has become even more common in the transition to cleaner energy.  MPW diligently evaluates energy sources that provide sustainability benefits without having a significant negative rate impact to our customers.

Wind Energy

Turning wind into watts

In 2016, the South Fork Wind Farm began producing renewable energy for MPW. The 13-megawatt wind farm produces energy - placed on the electrical grid – for consumption by homes and businesses in Muscatine.  Besides the benefits of diversifying MPW's generation resources and advancing the Utility's core value of environmental stewardship, wind energy allows MPW to proactively meet customer's demand for renewable energy options.  South Fork Wind Farm is just one part of MPW's renewable vision.
