Be part of our transition to renewable energy
Frequently asked questions
Why do you want to lease my land?
Everything that Alliant Energy builds requires land – solar and wind are no different. We site our projects with the following criteria in mind:
- A need for energy in the area
- Constructible land based on topography and access
- Minimal environmental concerns (wetlands, waterways, sensitive habitats)
What are you going to do with my land?
Currently, Alliant Energy has no plans to use your land. We will contact you shortly after your submission with our initial impression of your land. At a later date, if we decide to move forward with a project using your land, we will contact you about signing a lease or purchase option. Once a contract is signed, we will move forward with the development and construction of the project.
Am I committing to anything by filling out this survey?
Filling out this survey requires no commitment. All you are doing is signaling to Alliant Energy that you would be interested in learning more about how your land could be part of our transition to cleaner energy.
However, it is possible that your land is not a good fit for Alliant Energy’s current projects. It is also possible that you and Alliant Energy are not able to come to an agreement on a lease or contract. In both of those scenarios, your land will not be used.
Can I remove my land from consideration?
We are focused on working with landowners who voluntarily want to be part of a clean energy project. If you decide you are no longer interested in leasing your land to Alliant Energy, please wait until we reach out to you then inform us of your decision not to participate.
I don't have access to a computer or internet connection. Can I provide you my information over the phone?
Unfortunately, we cannot accept your information over the phone. Alliant Energy understands that some of our customers may have difficulties accessing the internet. However, we are unable to accept this information over the phone. Most public libraries offer free access to computers with an internet connection. If a library is unavailable, we would suggest you reach out to a friend or relative to submit this information.
What if I don’t have all the information you asked for in the survey?
You will be able to submit a response to the survey without all the information filled in. Alliant Energy will do our best with the information provided. However, please understand that omitting information might mean that we don’t have enough information to properly evaluate your land.
Should I hire a lawyer?
At this stage, there are no legal documents for an attorney to review but we encourage landowners to reach out to an attorney at their expense if they have questions on legal issues relating to leasing or property options. Alliant Energy cannot provide legal advice or opinions on these issues. Alliant Energy recommends working with a lawyer when a decision is made to enter a lease or contract. Please remember that not all land submitted will be used for projects and there could be a period of several years between the time a survey is filled out and a decision is made to move forward with a project.
