DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A New Jersey company has announced plans to invest $42 million in a west-central Iowa wind farm.

The Des Moines Register said the project will go up in Carroll County and have a capacity of 20 megawatts.

The company, NJR Clean Energy Ventures, is a subsidiary of Wall, N.J.-based New Jersey Resources. It has made a 25-year power purchase agreement with Des Moines-based MidAmerican Energy.

The wind farm is expected to be operational by spring 2015.
