Interstate Power and Light Co. (IPL), a subsidiary of Madison, Wis.-based Alliant Energy Corp., has partnered with developers of the Hardin-Hilltop Wind Project to purchase approximately 16 MW of energy generated by the project, located northwest of Jefferson, Iowa.

In 2006, IPL reached an agreement to purchase the energy generated from the seven wind turbines of the Hardin-Hilltop Wind Project, which became commercially operable in May 2007. Given the size and ownership of the project, IPL is eligible to receive the Iowa small renewable tax credit, the company adds.

Currently, IPL has approximately 260 MW of wind energy under contract in its energy portfolio.

"Our company is proud to partner with Wind Family Turbine LLC and the other investors in this project," says Tom Aller, president of IPL. "Tom Wind of Wind Family Turbine LLC has been instrumental in seeing this project through from start to finish, and our company commends him for his efforts."
