Alliant Energy offers gift certificates

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA – November 24, 2009 – Do you dread fighting crowds and waiting in long lines at the sales register? Do you have a hard-to-buy-for person on your list, and don’t know what to get them? If so, Alliant Energy suggests giving the gift of energy this holiday season – specifically in the form of an Alliant Energy gift certificate.

“Alliant Energy gift certificates are a practical and helpful gift for anyone on your holiday shopping list,” said Linda Mattes, Director of Energy Efficiency and Renewables at Alliant Energy. “Family, friends, neighbors and employees will all appreciate this thoughtful gift – and one less bill to pay over the holiday season.”

Recipients can use the gift certificates to pay all or part of their utility bill. All they need to do is enclose the gift certificate with their monthly Alliant Energy payment. They are available in any denomination and redeemable on any Alliant Energy utility bill – natural gas or electric.
