A critical element of Alliant Energy’s strategic plan includes investing in our largest and most efficient electric generating units. These investments are designed to reduce emissions and increase the efficiency of these units, providing our customers with competitive and reliable power for decades to come.
Recently-approved and proposed federal environmental rules will require substantial reductions in mercury (Hg), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions at our generating stations. To comply, we’ve already begun installing or have plans to install several types of emission controls at several of our generating stations.
