The Envision system rates the sustainability of infrastructure projects across the full range of environmental, social and economic impacts. The Platinum award is the highest attainable Envision recognition level.

  • In 2017, our Marshalltown Generating Station in Iowa received Platinum recognition, the first facility in the state to earn an Envision sustainable infrastructure award.
  • In March 2018, our 6.2-megawatt Dubuque Solar site was the first solar project in the nation to receive Platinum recognition.
  • In 2019, the Upland Prairie and English Wind Farms also received recognition for Platinum level of achievement.

We are pursuing Envision certification for our West Riverside Energy Center under construction near Beloit, Wisconsin.

The EnvisionTM framework measures sustainable efforts using a scorecard and verification process, which then applies credits/points using five key categories.
