The Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) will begin the public evidentiary hearing for MidAmerican Energy’s proposed Wind PRIME project at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, to better accommodate schedules for the participating parties. The hearing had previously been scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.

The evidentiary hearing for the presentation of evidence and the cross-examination of witnesses will be held in the IUB’s Hearing Room, located at 1375 E. Court Ave., Des Moines. 

MidAmerican is requesting advance ratemaking principles for up to 2,042 megawatts (MW) of wind generation and 50 MW of solar generation.

A previous evidentiary hearing was held in February and the IUB issued a Final Decision and Order on April 27. The IUB granted reconsideration on June 15 and held a scheduling conference to discuss the proposed schedule for the rehearing on July 10.

MidAmerican filed its application for advance ratemaking principles on January 19, 2022, in Docket No. RPU-2022-0001.
