Madison, Wis. – March 17, 2015 – Alliant Energy will be holding a community open house on Wednesday March 25 to share more information about its proposed Riverside Energy Center expansion.

The project would replace several older generating units planned for retirement in the next few years.

The open house will include two sessions on Wednesday, March 25.
