Keeping people warm: Alliant Energy to donate $2 million to assist low income families with heating costs

MADISON, Wis. – We’re making a donation of $2 million to our Hometown Care Energy Fund, which helps income-eligible customers across Alliant Energy’s service area keep up with heating costs.

Our Hometown Care Energy Fund collects donations from Alliant Energy shareowners, employees, retirees and customers. Over the past year, our customers, employees and retirees gave more than $250,000 through optional contributions. Alliant Energy’s contribution of $2 million comes from shareowners and is not included in the rates charged to utility customers.

Donations are distributed by community action agencies in Iowa and Minnesota and by Energy Services Inc.’s Keep Wisconsin Warm/Cool Fund in Wisconsin.

Income-eligible Alliant Energy customers can apply for funding as follows:

In Wisconsin, through their County Energy Assistance office

In Iowa, through their Community Action Agency

In Minnesota, through their County Energy Assistance office

The funds will be dispersed to the agencies this month. For more information on the Hometown Care Energy Fund, visit
