ALLIANT ENERGY ANNOUNCES IOWA WIND FARM EXPANSION

ALLIANT ENERGY ANNOUNCES IOWA WIND FARM EXPANSION

Iowa customers and communities will
benefit because of a new renewable energy
source from Alliant Energy’s Iowa energy
company and Invenergy. The companies
announced the signing of contracts through
which Invenergy will complete development
of the 210-megawatt (MW) Richland Wind
Farm in Sac County, Iowa. Alliant Energy
will construct and own the wind farm.

Located in west-central Iowa, Richland
Wind Farm is expected to create more than
150 construction jobs as well as inject tens
of millions of dollars in economic benefits to the local area. It will be completed by early 2020 and is expected to produce enough clean energy for 80,000 average Iowa homes a year.

Richland Wind Farm is part of Alliant Energy’s plan to add 1,000 MW of new wind generation for its Iowa customers by the end of 2020. The expansion comes from five new wind farms in Iowa.  Richland Wind Farm is the fifth and final part of this project.
