MidAmerican Energy's GreenAdvantage® program allows Iowa customers to claim a verified renewable energy amount to help them reach their sustainability goals.
The Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) verifies the amount of renewable energy produced by MidAmerican in a given year. This verification assures our customers that they are using clean, renewable energy harvested in Iowa. 
In 2022, thanks in part to record-setting winds, we reached a new milestone, meeting our customers' electricity demand with 100% renewable energy! Read our news release about the IUB's verification and how we're working to meet this goal on an ongoing basis.
GreenAdvantage program benefits Iowa's businesses, consumers and economy
The GreenAdvantage program passes on sustainability benefits to all Iowa customers at no additional cost. Instead of selling renewable energy certificates (RECs) on the market, MidAmerican retires them, allowing businesses, industrial facilities and residents to claim that renewable energy and advance their own sustainability goals. 
This first-of-its-kind, value-added program further positions Iowa as a place for businesses to expand or relocate to in order to reap the benefits of MidAmerican's clean, affordable energy. On top of renewable energy's environmental benefits, MidAmerican's communities and business customers across Iowa pay electric rates 42% below the national average. It's a competitive advantage that's hard to beat!
