Iowa-Missouri transmission line ready to provide pathway for wind generation

Thursday, August 15, 2019

MidAmerican Energy has completed a nearly 80-mile high-voltage regional transmission line that links southeastern Iowa and northeastern Missouri. This includes a 29-mile section that MidAmerican Energy constructed in three southeast Iowa counties.

Called the Multi-Value Project 7, the project provides a new major pathway for wind energy generation in areas along the route. In addition to improving transmission access for wind generation, the project helps relieve congestion on other high-voltage transmission lines and helps increase efficiency on the electric grid by reducing energy production costs.
