The Alliant Energy Solar Farm at Iowa State University will create a living laboratory for students and faculty to study soil, water, plant and animal interactions with a solar array integrated with agricultural land.
Beyond the production of renewable energy, Alliant Energy and Iowa State University will explore future opportunities to advance this solar and agricultural research project for education, demonstration and training purposes.
Clean energy, including solar, has become increasingly cost effective. Solar projects generate energy customers enjoy for many years, with no added fuel costs and low operation and maintenance costs. With this solar project, Iowa State University showcases its commitment to sustainability and agriculture research.
Partnering with customers to develop solar projects is just another way we keep our customers at the heart of everything we do. For more information, visit poweringwhatsnext.alliantenergy.com.
