CFU Supports Energy Produced from Renewable Resources
Sustainable and Reliable Service
At Cedar Falls Utilities we believe in making smart energy choices for our community.
Strong customer partnerships to reduce energy consumption and the growth of alternative energy in the Iowa energy market mean our community’s energy-related greenhouse gas emissions have shrunk considerably.
In 2020 the CFU local Board of Trustees set emissions reduction goals for CFU provided energy sources. Our goal is to reduce CO2 equivalent emissions 45% from 2010 levels by 2030. We are well on our way. In 2022 total CFU CO2 equivalent emissions were 33% less than a decade ago. CFU’s long-term goal for electric generation is to be carbon-neutral by 2050.
CFU is supportive of the wind and solar energy available in Iowa today and welcomes future additions. While the energy market shifts to renewable technology, controllable, fuel-based generation continues to be important to ensure customers have affordable energy when they need it.
We are doing our part by preserving traditional generation and investigating new resources that can help facilitate a smart transition to renewable energy.
