Alliant Energy Sustainability Report

Alliant Energy recently issued its 2017 Corporate Sustainability Report showing progress toward a sustainable future. The utility has been able to reduce its carbon emissions 34 percent since 2005 and increase its investments in renewable energy. The company also cut fossil fuel generation water withdrawals by over 25 percent since 2005 with plans targeting a reduction of 75 percent by 2030. In 2016, renewable energy made up 15 percent of Alliant Energy’s rated electric capacity. By 2024, that is expected to nearly double as the company pursues new investments in wind and other renewable generation. The report is available at Alliant’s website.
