Thursday, April 19, 2018
On April 19, 2018, the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) annouced Alliant Energy’s Dubuque Solar Project earned the Envision Platinum rating for sustainable infrastructure. The award is the highest honor given by the organization. This is the first solar project to receive recognition of this level and the second project in Iowa to receive the Envision Platinum rating.
The project encompasses two solar fields in our community—a 5.9-acre brownfield site on 12th Street downtown and a 21.1-acre site in the Dubuque Industrial Center West, the largest solar garden in the state of Iowa. The annual output of the solar gardens is equal to the annual usage of about 850 homes.
