Creating new opportunity with unique industrial center

Bringing new jobs and investment to our communities creates opportunities and helps make lives better for our customers. In late 2016, Alliant Energy announced the Big Cedar Industrial Center on the southwest edge of Cedar Rapids. 
The over-1,300-acre area is the state’s largest industrial site available for development and combines innovative features, including CRANDIC rail service and planned intermodal complex, to attract new companies and employment. A site of this magnitude puts the state of Iowa into contention to recruit large employers that may have never considered locating here before.
Work is underway to market the site for development both nationally and internationally. In addition to the economic impact to the community, attracting large customers to the area helps spread costs and can reduce future increases for them.

Save this winter with a tuneup this fall

A tuneup for your car can spot small problems before they become big ones, extend the life of your engine and make sure it’s running efficiently. 
Getting your furnace tuned up can do the same thing. We’ll also help you save money on the checkup. Our HVAC System Tuneup Rebate gives you a refund on half of the service cost (up to $50). 
Contact one of the HVAC professionals in our Dealer Locator to set up a cleaning and tuneup this fall. This winter, you’ll be warm, safe and saving on your heating costs.
To learn more about this and other rebates, visit our Ways to Save tab on our homepage left sidebar.
