Buffett’s MidAmerican Completes 81-Megawatt Wind Project

December 10, 2012

MidAmerican Energy Holdings Co., the power provider owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc., completed an 81-megawatt wind farm in Illinois.

MidAmerican Wind’s Bishop Hill II project is about 40 miles (64 kilometers) northwest of Peoria and uses 50 General Electric Co. 1.62-megawatt turbines, according to a statement on the company’s website today. Power from the project is being sold under a 20-year contract with Ameren Corp. (AEE:US)

MidAmerican bought the project in January from Invenergy Wind LLC for an undisclosed amount. Construction began about a year ago, according to the statement.
