We are adding 400 megawatts of solar generation.
Alliant Energy is working tirelessly to achieve net-zero CO2 emissions from the electricity we generate by 2050. This includes renewable generation (wind, solar) and retiring coal-fired facilities. We’re creating a clean energy future – for decades to come.
As part of our Clean Energy Blueprint, we plan to add 400 megawatts (MW) of solar generation in Iowa by the end of 2024. Alliant Energy already owns and operates more than 1,300 MW of wind generation in Iowa.
We are working together with the agriculture industry, labor groups and landowners to ensure everyone understands the benefits of solar. Our partnership with environmental stakeholders will help minimize the impacts on water, land and wildlife.
As we work to construct more solar projects around the state, we invite the public, elected officials and local community members to engage with us in meaningful dialogues to ensure the results benefit all of Iowa’s communities.
