Alliant Energy to Electrify Light-Duty Fleet Vehicles by 2030
October 2020

Last month during National Drive Electric Week, Alliant Energy announced that 100 percent of its active light-duty fleet vehicles will be electric by 2030 as part of the company’s commitment to deliver a clean energy future to the customers and communities it serves.

“By transitioning to electric vehicles, we reduce the total cost of ownership of our fleet and reduce emissions. The savings are an element of our ongoing focus to maintain affordable rates for our customers while also contributing to a cleaner environment,” said JP Brummond, vice president of business planning at Alliant Energy.

To achieve its goal, Alliant Energy will replace end-of-life light-duty vehicles, including up to half-ton pickups, sedans, SUVs, passenger vans, and forklifts, with battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. The company plans to purchase electric vehicles and parts locally to benefit its local communities and economies.

Alliant Energy’s fleet commitment aligns with the company’s Clean Energy Vision, which is detailed in the company’s 2020 Corporate Responsibility Report​. Alliant Energy aims to eliminate all coal from its generation fleet by 2040 and also has announced a new goal of net-zero carbon dioxide emissions for the electricity it generates by 2050.

More than 70 percent of EEI member companies already have made new fleet electrification commitments, and, collectively, these commitments put member companies on track to electrify more than one-third of their fleet vehicles by 2030, including two-thirds of the passenger vehicles in their fleets.
