Because industrial growth strengthens our growth, Alliant Energy’s economic development partnerships are vital to our success. Despite the economic uncertainty sparked by the pandemic, 2020 marked significant industrial growth across Alliant Energy’s Iowa and Wisconsin service area. We successfully assisted in major expansions and recruited several new companies throughout our market.
- 31 industrial projects.
- Over $906 million in new capital investment.
- 2,267 new jobs created.
“At Alliant Energy, our purpose is to serve customers and build strong communities,” said John Larsen, Alliant Energy chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Our long-term partnership with communities and local economic groups is one more way we bring that purpose to life.”
Because of our strong partnerships, Alliant Energy was once again recognized as a “Top Utility in Economic Development” by Site Selection magazine in 2020. Alliant Energy was selected from among the estimated 3,300 electric utility companies operating across the United States. It was the only utility in Iowa and Wisconsin acknowledged for this prominent honor.
