Alliant Energy accelerates renewable energy in Wisconsin

Alliant Energy accelerates renewable energy in Wisconsin 

We recently announced our Powering What’s Next plan, which will accelerate the transition to cleaner energy for our customers in Wisconsin.

The first milestone of the plan will expand our Wisconsin solar energy generation by up to 1,000 megawatts by the end of 2023. Next year, we will break ground on our first community solar project in Fond du Lac County. “By building new solar energy resources, we are contributing to a brighter future for our customers and the communities we serve,” said David de Leon, President of Alliant Energy’s Wisconsin energy company.

The Powering What’s Next plan outlines several key areas of focus to help customers participate in a cleaner, technology-intensive energy future.

Clean Energy Blueprint

We’ve created a Clean Energy Blueprint for our Wisconsin customers. It provides the underlying analysis to accelerate our transition to renewable energy and provide cost-effective service to our customers.

Smarter energy use

New programs will allow customers to take advantage of budget-friendly billing options, move usage to off-peak times, and learn how to use appliance settings and smart home technologies to conserve energy.

Your energy, your choice

We now offer customers more options to rely on renewable energy. Customers can:

  • Choose to have up to 100% of their energy supplied by renewable sources
  • Participate in a customer-hosted, utility-owned solar panel program through roof-leasing designed for medium-sized projects of ~200kw
  • Interconnect private solar panels to the power grid
  • Aggregate service for large customers with multiple accounts under a single renewable energy contract
