Overview

Alliant Energy and the American Wind Energy Association hosted Sen. Chuck Grassley to present him with a Wind Champion award for his long-standing support of American wind power. As the "grandfather" of the federal production tax credit, the primary incentive for wind power development, Grassley helped spur wind farms and a supply chain in his state that now employ more than 7,000 Iowans.

The Senator also toured Alliant's Upland Prairie Wind Farm, which is currently under construction near Everly.
