    Reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050

    NetZero Logo
    At MidAmerican Energy, we are on a mission to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 – all while maintaining the reliability our customers require, at a price they can afford and that technological advances support.

    A major milestone on our road to net zero is delivering 100% renewable energy to our customers through the GreenAdvantage® program. It’s a milestone we’re well on the way to achieving. In 2021, 88.5% of the energy our Iowa customers used over the course of the year came from renewable sources.

    To continue our advancement to 100% renewable energy, we must continue to invest in wind and solar through the recently proposed Wind PRIME project. If approved by the Iowa Utilities Board, the project would add 2,000+ megawatts of wind and 50 megawatts of solar – allowing MidAmerican to meet our goal of delivering 100% renewable energy to our Iowa customers.

    But, the work doesn’t stop there. To meet net zero, we will also:
    • Investigate emerging clean technologies, like battery storage and nuclear power, and stay in-tune to new innovations
    • Build out transmission infrastructure
    • Work with stakeholders to accelerate low-carbon transitions
    • Partner with customers to be part of their decarbonization solutions
    Meeting our net-zero greenhouse gas emissions goal, while we balance your needs for reliable, safe and affordable service, is just another way we are obsessively, relentlessly, at your service.
