Save energy, save money and earn rewards for Oelwein

Hometown RewardsIntroducing the Hometown Rewards program from Alliant Energy.

When 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? An energy-efficient one that will remind Oelwein about its commitment to efficiency for years to come.

Oelwein’s Hometown Rewards goals

  • Reduce city-wide energy use by 4% by December 2015.
  • Learn how to save energy through workshops and events.
  • Have at least 5% of households get an energy assessment.
  • Need 50 community volunteers to be leaders in the program.
