The NorthStar and Red Rock wind farms, which are expected to connect to the transmission line, are expected to have a capacity of 200 and 300 megawatts, respectively. MidAmerican spokesperson Ashton Newman said the project would provide Iowa with added grid stability and facilitate renewable energy development. Sioux City Journal (Iowa) (04/23)
