The Nunobiki Highlands Wind Farm (郡山布引高原風力発電所, Kōriyama Nunobiki Fūryoku-hatsudensho) is a wind farm operated by the electric utility company J-Power alongside Lake Inawashiro in Kōriyama, Fukushima, Japan. It is approximately 1,080 meters above sea level.[citation needed]

The wind farm produces 65.98 megawatts of power using a total of 33 type Enercon E-70, wind turbines, and generates enough power for approximately 35,000 houses.[1]

The facility began operating in February 2007. Each wind turbine is about 100 meters high, and each turbine blade is about 30 meters long.
