Wisconsin’s Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) has announced a proposal to construct, own and operate its largest wind farm to date: the 66 MW, 33-turbine Saratoga project, to be situated in Howard County, Iowa.

The wind farm would be located about 200 miles west of Madison, Wis., near Saratoga, Iowa. If approved by regulators, the project’s construction could begin in early 2018. It would deliver enough energy to power approximately 47,000 homes by the end of that year, the utility says.
