Interstate Power & Light Company, an Alliant Energy Company

Award category


Year released


Showcase calendar generates strong interest in commercial/industrial energy efficiency. In 2008, Interstate Power & Light Company (IPL), which supplies electric service in three Midwestern states, helped customers save enough energy to power more than 7,400 homes a year. In 2009, IPL developed its first ever “Being Green” calendar for customers highlighting energy efficiency programs and best practices already in use throughout the utility service territory. Featured projects included insulating boilers, replacing inefficient dryers, retrofitting lighting, installing LED traffic signals, upgrading compressed air systems and incorporating energy efficiency into new construction. The calendar, which was initially distributed to about 2,200 customers has been reprinted twice to meet customer demand, and has generated inquires about being featured in future editions and interest in exploring energy efficiency programs.
