Largest Solar Array in Iowa

Midland Power’s affiliate cooperative, Central Iowa Power Cooperative (CIPCO), will be working with Clēnera LLC to develop the largest solar project in Iowa, and one of the largest in the Midwest. Midland Power’s affiliate will purchase 100 percent of the energy and capacity output for 25 years from Wapello Solar, a 100-megawatt solar facility to be located on approximately 800 acres in Louisa County.
