Our Environmental Commitment

Commitment isn’t just a word at Alliant Energy, we work every day to create a clean, safe and healthy environment for customers and future generations.

Land and wildlife
Alliant Energy protects our natural resources and the wildlife that depend on them. Learn more about our efforts including tree planting programs and our work protecting the habitat of the Karner Blue Butterfly and Peregrine falcons, Sturgeon, and Osprey nests.

Renewable energy
Alliant Energy works to provide our customers with balanced energy solutions that are environmentally responsible, reliable and cost effective.  Alternative energy sources include: wind, solar, hydro, biomass and aerobic digesters. 

Customers interested in making a difference should enroll in Second Nature, our green-pricing program. If customers would like to go further and generate power on their property read more about customer-owned generation.

Performance and compliance
A critical element of Alliant Energy’s strategic plan includes investing in our largest and most efficient electric generating units. Recently-approved and proposed federal environmental rules require substantial reductions in mercury (Hg), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions at our generating stations. We have continued installing emission controls at several of our generating stations.
