Generation & Transmission

At CIPCO, we have a responsibility to provide competitively priced electricity to our member owners. We believe energy policy must be based on a balanced, common-sense approach that ensures consistent, maintained, adequate levels of electric power supply and a reliable transmission system to move the power to the members' distribution points. In this pursuit, CIPCO maintains a portfolio of generation resources which emphasize ownership of production assets supplemented by market purchases.

As a state-of-the-art energy provider, we are meeting our members’ needs with a diverse fuel mix of coal, nuclear, hydro, wind, solar, landfill gas generation, natural gas, and oil energy resources. We continue to invest in new technology and renewable energy production, supporting Iowa's development of renewable energy resources. Nearly 60 percent of our electricity is generated from emission and carbon-free resources minimizing the impact to our environment.
