Alliant Energy shares tips to save energy during cold spell

Tuesday, February 16, 2021


While demand for natural gas has increased during the current cold streak, Alliant Energy is projecting sufficient supply to meet the needs of natural gas and electric customers and is prepared to keep the lights on and gas flowing. Company officials say crews are always prepared to respond to any event that impacts energy services to its customers.

As customers use more energy to heat their homes during the cold snap, heating bills are likely to increase. Customers needing support to help pay their bill should call 211 or visit for details about available options, including the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and the Hometown Care Energy Fund. Customers are also encouraged to track their energy usage through their online accounts. By setting up usage alerts, customers get notified when they use a specific amount of energy and avoid surprises on their bills.

If customers experience an outage or would like to check on the status of an outage, they can visit: or call 1-800-ALLIANT (1-800-255-4268).
