Alliant Energy Plans to Construct Iowa Plant

LCG, May 1, 2002-The Interstate Power and Light utility subsidiary Alliant Energy Corp. announced intentions to construct a $400 million plant in Iowa.

The Alliant's pending natural gas-fired plant would generate 500 MW, but its location is yet to be determined.

Sites near Independence City and Mason City are being considered, and the plant is tentatively planned for operation beginning in 2004.

The company reported receiving twenty bids, and Interstate Power and Light was chosen to build the plant.

Alliant will accept bids for renewable energy development, to be decided upon in two weeks. The company also plans to take proposals for a new coal-fired plant later this year.
