The Hometown Rewards program rewards Iowa communities for cutting back energy use. We partner with your town to set energy-savings goals and find ways to meet them over a two-year period.

If goals are met, Alliant Energy will help fund an energy-efficient project chosen by your community. Our past projects include new LED streetlights, an energy-efficient heating and cooling system for a school and solar panels for a town library.
