Alliant Energy has been recognized as a “Top Utility in Economic Development” by Site Selection magazine. The magazine bases the ranking on corporate project investment, job creation figures and utility service area populations. In 2018, Alliant Energy had 49 new industrial, warehouse and large office projects, $1.438 billion in new capital investment and 3,667 new jobs across our Iowa and Wisconsin service area.
Over the last three years, we have invested in several certified industrial sites such as Big Cedar Industrial Center, Prairie View Industrial Center and Beaver Dam Commerce Park. This recognition showcases our progress in those efforts as we fuel growth for our customers and communities.
“As a company, we are all extremely proud of this prestigious award. Our economic development, account management, engineering and marketing teams have played a critical role in Alliant Energy being placed among this elite group of utilities,” said John Larsen, Chairman, President and CEO at Alliant Energy.
Alliant Energy is focused on growing both existing and new customers. Energy is a big factor in the selection of a site or the expansion of an existing customer and the energy solutions we provide have positively impacted these high-dollar expansion and construction decisions.
