During the last heating season, more than 7,500 Wisconsin and Iowa households received help with their energy costs thanks to shareowners, customers, employees and retirees of Alliant Energy.
Our shareowners are again contributing $2 million to the Hometown Care Energy Fund, which helps income-eligible customers across our service area with heating costs.
During the last heating season, Alliant Energy employees, retirees and customers contributed an additional $210,000.
Cold Midwest winters place an additional burden on limited-income families.
“Our company has a history of partnering with our communities,” said Patricia Kampling, Alliant Energy’s Chairman, President and CEO. “Together, the generosity of customers, our employees and retirees enables Hometown Care to help ensure all of our friends and neighbors have warm homes.”
Funds are distributed to customers by community action agencies in Iowa 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
Alliant Energy’s contribution comes from shareowners and is not paid by our customers.
