It’s not just about energy, but what it powers us all to do together.
At Alliant Energy, we’re working hard to deliver safe, reliable energy every single day. And we’re investing in cleaner energy sources for the future. That is because our Purpose is to serve customers and build stronger communities. And we use our energy every day to bring that Purpose to life for you.
It’s not about just changing the way we generate energy. It’s about acting today – to meet our customers’ energy needs tomorrow.
That’s why we created our clean energy blueprint. And aspire to achieve net-zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the electricity we generate by 2050 and eliminate all coal from our generation fleet by 2040 – 10 years faster than previously planned.
It’s not just about supporting the communities we serve. It’s about caring for our residents and the places they live.

The telephone titan
Alliant Energy retiree Arlene Torrenga found a new way to give back during COVID. Each week, she places over a dozen phone calls to friends and people who live alone or in assisted living facilities. She’s not just checking on their physical health: These phone calls are a bright spot in her friends’ weeks, helping them stay emotionally and mentally healthy.
“After retiring, I worked in a nursing home and then an assisted living home for a total of twelve years,” Arlene says. “I saw firsthand how much it meant for the elderly to receive phone calls, have visitors and receive mail from family and friends."
She adds, "I was being told how much the calls were looked forward to and appreciated. It didn't take me long to realize that I was making a difference."
