More flooding in eastern Iowa has prompted us to expand flood rebate assistance to fourteen more counties hit by flooding. We are increasing rebates by 50 percent to flood-affected customers to help offset the financial impact of replacing equipment due to the flooding.
The list of counties now include: Allamakee, Benton, Black Hawk, Bremer, Buchanan, Butler, Cedar, Cerro Gordo, Chickasaw, Clayton, Delaware, Fayette, Floyd, Franklin, Hancock, Howard, Linn, Mitchell, Winneshiek, Worth and Wright. The increase applies to equipment purchased August 23, 2016 – December 31, 2016.
“We understand that starting over after a flood is challenging. We want to do our part to help our customers recover,” said Doug Kopp, president of Alliant Energy’s Iowa utility.
This is not the first time we have increased rebates for flooding. We offered $614,377 in rebates during the 2008 floods. The increased rebates in 2008 helped offset nearly 2,200 homes, businesses and farms rebuilding after the flood.
