The significant increase in wind turbines we see around our state indicates the importance of wind energy as a viable alternative energy source and its impact on our economy. Join us to learn about the development of wind power in the United States in general and Iowa in particular and the role MidAmerican Energy, Iowa’s largest producer of wind power, has played. We will learn about wind project development, construction, operations and maintenance.


Instructor Tom Daft is the principal engineer for MidAmerican’s wind energy team and has been with MidAmerican for 35 years, serving in a variety of engineering, analytical and management roles. Tom has a BS in chemical engineering from Iowa State University and an MBA from the University of Iowa.
