Domestic Utility Generation Plan - Construction of the 300 MW, simple-cycle, natural gas-fired Sheboygan Falls Energy Facility near Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin is over 90% complete and is expected to go on-line in June 2005. This project has been awaiting final lease approval from the PSCW under the Wisconsin leased generation law. When the lease terms are finally approved, Resources Non-regulated Generation business would own the Sheboygan Falls Energy Facility and lease it to WPL for an initial period of 20 years, with an option for two lease renewal periods thereafter. WPL will be responsible for the operation of the plant and will have exclusive rights to its output. The PSCW issued its oral decision approving the proposed lease, with some modifications, on May 5, 2005. Alliant Energy expects the PSCW to issue its final written order later in May 2005 and will review the final decision once it is issued.

Domestic Utility Generation Plan - In 2003, Alliant Energy announced a plan to add an additional 1,600 megawatts (MW) of domestic utility generating capacity to its diversified portfolio by 2010. Alliant Energy intends to add this new generation to meet increasing customer demand, reduce reliance on purchased-power agreements and mitigate the impacts of potential future plant retirements. Alliant Energy will continue to purchase energy and capacity in the market and intends to remain a net purchaser of both, but at a reduced level assuming the successful completion of these generation projects. The plan also reflects continued commitments to Alliant Energys energy efficiency and environmental protection programs. The following is a summary of the significant progress Alliant Energy has made to-date regarding the execution of this plan:
Alliant Energy reviews and updates, as deemed necessary and in accordance with regulatory requirements, its domestic utility generation requirements on a periodic basis.
