It’s in your power to be green

Home electricity use is one of the top issues to address if you want to reduce your carbon footprint.

And, even if you rent, or your roof isn’t right for solar, we still offer an easy way for you to go green.

Choosing Alliant Energy’s Second Nature program enables you to take advantage of earth-friendly renewable energy produced from local wind, solar and bioenergy generators.

When you participate, you’re helping to displace electricity that would otherwise come from sources like coal, natural gas and nuclear power, and to improve air quality.

Just one household participating in Alliant Energy’s Second Nature program at the 100% level reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 8.6 metric tons per year. That’s equivalent to taking almost two passenger cars off the road for one year.

You can sign up to use renewable power in amounts equal to 25%, 50% or 100% of your electric usage. A few dollars per month can make a big difference.

The energy for Second Nature customers comes primarily from wind farms in Hancock County, Iowa, and Dodge County, Wisconsin. The remainder comes from a landfill gas generator in Janesville, Wisconsin and new solar projects in Wisconsin and Iowa.

The Second Nature program is Green-e® Energy certified and meets the environmental and consumer-protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions.
