The Power of Wind

The power of the wind has been harnessed for thousands of years. As technology has advanced, the wind has been used for grinding grain, pumping water and providing electricity to farms beyond the reach of power lines. Today, wind farms use the energy contained in prevailing winds to generate electricity for homes and businesses.


Our businesses’ wind projects foster economic development and demonstrate Berkshire Hathaway Energy’s commitment to renewable energy and environmental respect. Through our subsidiaries MidAmerican Energy Company and PacifiCorp, we are No. 1 in the nation in ownership of wind-powered electric generation among rate-regulated utilities.
