How does it work?
With your enrollment in Second Nature, we're able to buy more earth-friendly renewable energy produced from wind and solar power.
We combine your requirement with other Second Nature customers to get the month's total green requirement. Then we make sure we're bringing enough new green energy into our energy pool to meet the total green requirement. This additional green energy displaces electricity that would otherwise come from sources like coal, gas and nuclear.

Iowa participation costs
|Monthly electric use||25% level (+ $0.0025/kWh)||50% level (+ $0.005/kWh)||100% level (+ $0.01/kWh)|
Billing also includes an adjustment per kilowatt-hour to compensate for changes in the cost of fuel. The Second Nature™ energy cost adjustment will be fixed for each calendar year and will be recalculated on an annual basis with the most recent actual 12-month period of energy costs and applied in the first calendar month after approval by the Iowa Utilities Board.
