Alliant eyes 500MW Iowa drive
Approval sought from state utilities board for new wind projects
Alliant Energy is seeking approval from the Iowa Utilities Board to add up to 500MW of wind energy in the US state.
The US company expects a decision on the new plan in early 2018.
In 2016, it received approval for a similar expansion and said the combined projects would represent a $1.8bn investment and add up to 1GW of new wind generation in Iowa.
Alliant Energy Iowa president Doug Kopp said: “The customers and communities we serve will benefit from this cost effective clean energy.”
