Turbine Powered Initiative
MGE's new wind farm in Howard County, Iowa, came online in early 2019. The 66-MW Saratoga wind farm is MGE's largest to date—delivering enough energy to power about 47,000 households. Wind turbine technology has advanced throughout the last decade, producing turbines that generate energy more efficiently and cost effectively.
This site is about 200 miles west of Madison—located in the northeast section of Iowa. This high, flat and open area provides an excellent wind resource and is close to an established substation and transmission lines to carry the power to MGE customers.
