Coal Plants: The Price Iowans Pay, Webinar #2

View a recording on our YouTube channel of IEC's event Coal Plants: The Price Iowans Pay, Webinar #2.

On Wednesday, August 18, 2021, IEC hosted the second event in our three-part webinar series looking at excess coal generation here in Iowa. The first webinar focused on explaining excess coal generation by examining investor-owned utility customer sales vs. market sales. In the second webinar, IEC further explored negative impacts on Iowa's corn yields and what farmers stand to gain if only renewable energy sources were used. 

Iowans are paying with their lives, health, and safety and farmers are paying a significant corn production penalty from unnecessary coal plant pollution. Coal plant emissions are increasingly being recognized as significantly impacting our health, and are silent killers. It is time for MidAmerican Energy and Alliant Energy to be accountable to Iowans.
