Alliant's new $700M natural-gas fired Iowa plant set to go online

MARSHALLTOWN, Ia. — Alliant Energy will begin supplying energy this weekend from a $700 million natural gas-fired plant in Marshalltown that'll produce enough electricity to power 500,000 homes.

The Times-Republican reports the Marshalltown Generating Station is the biggest economic development project in the community's history and one of the largest ever in central Iowa.

Alliant officials say the economic impact has been chart-busting over the past two and a half years, with $47.3 million spent in the Marshalltown area by contractors and workers as of Feb. 13.
