Des Moines Register: About two dozen farmers and landowners in western Iowa say MidAmerican Energy is failing to fully pay them for damage caused when building an 81-turbine wind farm in Ida County. It's another point of tension in the relationship between rural residents and the Des Moines company, which has made Iowa a national leader in wind generation, building about 3,000 turbines across the state. The group filed a complaint with the utility, saying the company has failed to keep its promise to pay farmers and landowners four times the crop damage they experienced when MidAmerican built its 202-megawatt wind farm.
