A smarter way to use energy

Heating or cooling a home takes a lot of energy. On very hot or cold days, demand for energy can spike and make power more expensive for everyone who needs it.

When you enroll in Alliant Energy Smart Hours, we automatically reduce your energy use when demand spikes. Smart Hours events may happen up to 15 times each season. We coordinate your energy use with that of thousands of others right when it counts to protect the energy system and keep you comfortable.

You help us keep energy cleaner and more affordable for everyone. It doesn’t take any extra effort on your part, and you’ll earn rewards at the end of each season you participate!
