(AP) New figures show that Iowa remains No. 2 in the nation in wind power. The American Wind Energy Association reported this week that Iowa added 160 megawatts of wind-generation capacity in the second quarter of the year, bringing its generation capacity to 3,043.
Texas remains far ahead of Iowa in wind energy at 8,361 megawatts. Behind Iowa is California with 2,787 megawatts.
Officials say Iowa's additional capacity in the second quarter came from one wind farm — an 80-turbine project in Worth County, developed by Iberdrola Renewables.
Officials say four new projects are under construction.
