About our website

  • All the articles found on the PowerHouse website are written by Alliant Energy. All content is reviewed and approved by our team of energy efficiency and safety experts.
  • Our "factoids" are official statistics from the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration.

To help our visitors find the information they need, we often provide links to other informative websites, as well as brochures and fact sheets produced by other knowledgeable organizations.
