GreenAdvantage

GreenAdvantage program helps customers meet sustainability goals

About the program

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 verifies the amount of renewable energy produced by MidAmerican Energy in a given year. For 2017, that amounted to 50.8 percent of the retail electric load MidAmerican Energy delivered. This allows us to give our Iowa customers the assurance that they are using clean wind energy, harvested in Iowa.

MidAmerican Energy – a leader in renewable energy

As part of its commitment to achieving a 100 percent renewable energy vision, MidAmerican Energy Company invests in wind farms that generate renewable energy.

Beware of Scams

GreenAdvantage program benefits businesses, consumers, Iowa’s economy

The GreenAdvantage program and MidAmerican Energy’s leadership both help position Iowa as a leader in clean, renewable energy. This benefits consumers, existing businesses and those looking for new places to locate.

Launched in 2017, the first-of-its kind value-added GreenAdvantage program emphasizes Iowa’s commitment to locally produced renewable resources. It also helps companies – especially those that emphasize clean energy – build and maintain a sustainable business in Iowa.

MidAmerican Energy’s investment in renewables has helped make Iowa a national wind energy leader. Iowa leads the country in the percentage of electric generation coming from wind. Readily available wind energy is naturally abundant, and helps keep rates low and affordable for MidAmerican Energy customers.

Together with MidAmerican Energy’s other wind farms, once Wind XII is approved by IUB and completed, it will allow the company to provide renewable energy each year equal to 100 percent of the energy consumed by the homes and businesses in the company’s Iowa service area.

MidAmerican Energy will continue to use its natural gas, nuclear and coal-fueled plants to ensure reliable electric service even in times of low wind.
