Summary

The Alliant Energy Renewable Cash-Back Rewards program offers rebates for solar photovoltaics (PV), wind, renewable biomass, and anaerobic digesters. Businesses and farms that are Alliant Energy electric customers qualify for these rebates. Note that the above web site directs to the business incentives; the farm incentives are the same rate and can be found here. In order to apply for the program, customers must first use the online self-assessment tool. Alliant Energy will then contact customers to schedule an energy efficiency audit and a site assessment to determine the incentive level and the renewable energy potential. Customers can receive a higher "Energy Efficient" rebate rate for wind and solar PV if the business or farm meets certain energy efficient objectives, as determined by an energy efficiency audit.


The solar and wind rebates are based on the lesser of either the estimated first year output in kilowatt hours (kWh) or the optimal annual energy usage of the facility in kWh as follows:


  • Standard PV: The lesser of
    • estimated first year output in kWh x $0.50 or
    • optimal annual energy usage of the facility in kWh x .75 x $0.50
  • Energy Efficient PV: The lesser of
    • estimated first year output in kWh x $1.00 or
    • optimal annual energy usage of the facility in kWh x .75 x $1.00
  • Standard Wind: The lesser of
    • estimated first year output in kWh x $0.25 or
    • optimal annual energy usage of the facility in kWh x .75 x $0.25
  • Energy Efficient Wind: The lesser of
    • estimated first year output in kWh x $0.75 or
    • optimal annual energy usage of the facility in kWh x .75 x $0.75

Businesses can also receive rebates through the Energy Efficiency Rebate Program or the Farm Equipment Energy Efficiency Rebate Program in order to meet the energy efficient objectives.
