Save energy, save money and earn rewards for North Liberty

Introducing the Hometown Rewards program from Alliant Energy.

Hometown RewardsWhen you save energy, everybody wins. And now there's one more reason to do so – Alliant Energy's Hometown Rewards program.

This program rewards your town for reducing its energy usage either by adopting energy-efficient behaviors (turning off lights, unplugging unused electronics, etc.) or investing in energy-efficient upgrades (like compact fluorescent light bulbs, new insulation, etc.). If your town is successful, Alliant Energy will give your community a reward.

What kind of reward are we talking about? One picked by you and the sustainability leaders in North Liberty - new LED lights for your town's baseball diamonds and soccer fields or possibly a new energy-efficient public building.
