Pioneer Prairie I Wind Farm, which is located in northeastern Iowa in Howard and Mitchell Counties, has an installed capacity of 198 MW – enough to power more than 60,000 Iowa homes annually. Construction of the wind farm’s 120 Vestas V82 1.65 MW turbines started in spring 2008 and the wind farm achieved commercial operation in December 2008. The electricity generated by the wind farm is sold into the regional wholesale market. The associated renewable energy credits are used by businesses and organizations to comply with state renewable energy mandates or to voluntarily reduce the environmental impact of their operations.
Horizon Wind Energy is committed to building not only the highest quality wind energy projects but also strong working relationships with utilities. Whether we enter into power purchase agreements (PPA’s) through a bidding process or through a bilateral negotiation, we work hard to earn and maintain the trust of our customers.
