Infrastructure Show: Wind Turbines for Sustainable Energy

Wind has been an important, renewable source of energy for millennia. In recent decades wind power has come into its own, now producing more than 6 percent of U.S. electricity and growing rapidly. Today tens of thousands of wind turbines, many taller than 50-story buildings, dot rural landscapes, and soon will appear off our coasts. The design and construction of large-scale wind farms is a challenge involving energy planning, economics, and engineering. To learn about the development and implementation of the wind energy resource in the Midwest, and the construction and operation of wind turbines, we talk with Spencer Moore, Vice President of Generation of MidAmerican Energy Company, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Energy, located in Des Moines, Iowa.
