In the Hawkeye State, MidAmerican Energy reports it will upgrade hundreds of older wind turbines across Iowa for increased unit efficiency and power generation capacity. The older turbines will be retrofitted with newer, more efficient components, including longer blades, to extend the life of the turbines.

MidAmerican has entered into agreements with General Electric (GE) to complete the upgrades that are slated to begin later this year at various sites including the Victory wind farm in Crawford and Carroll Counties and the Intrepid wind farm in Buena Vista and Sac Counties. Additional sites and schedules are expected at a later date.

Buena Vista Opens Carbon Sequestration Test Site (Ind. Report)

Date: 2017-08-25
In the Golden State, the city of Buena Vista Department of the Environment, in cooperation with the not-for-profit Urban Permaculture Institute (UPI) and Matter of Trust, are reporting the launch of a two-year study to measure the carbon sequestration impact of adding compost to the city's sandy soil to promote plant growth and act as a "carbon sink."

The study aims to determine the feasibility of reproducing and expanding other, similar urban programs across the state. The city previously considered the sequestration impact of its parks and forests, but similar forest management proposals have focused largely on erosion control and windbreaks rather than the benefits of carbon sinks.
