(Beaver Dam) Alliant Energy is temporarily suspending disconnections for all customers in Wisconsin during the coronavirus public health emergency. The company also plans to collaborate with state partners and organizations with the goal of waiving late fees to help those suffering financial hardships. Alliant Energy says the “temporary suspension will alleviate customer concerns about continued access to their utility service” and “allows them to concentrate on the health of their families and businesses during this unprecedented and rapidly changing situation.”
Also, the Alliant Energy Foundation announced Wednesday that they are donating $100,000 to the coronavirus relief efforts in Wisconsin and Iowa. The foundation says the immediate support will benefit non-profit organizations and directly assist community needs in response to the crises. President of Alliant Energy in Wisconsin David de Leon says they are committed to the health and safety of their customers and the communities they live in. $70,000 will be shared between six food banks in both Wisconsin and Iowa, $10,000 will go to the American Red Cross in each state and an additional $10,000 will support organizations providing food and other critical services in specific communities.
