Alliant Energy launches forklift rebate program for Iowa and Wisconsin

Electric-powered forklift technology has improved so much that Alliant Energy is now offering a $1,000 rebate toward the purchase of or conversion to a Class 1 or Class 2* electric forklift. 

Did you know? Electric forklifts are gaining in popularity. They are:

  • Smaller and more maneuverable—they can operate in narrower aisles
  • Stronger—they can lift up to 12,000 lbs
  • More durable—they can operate outdoors and on uneven surfaces
  • Longer lasting—they can run up to 8 hours on a single battery charge

Switch to electric forklifts and see:

  • Greater use of floor space with narrower aisles
  • Safer, quieter and healthier workplace
  • Lower fuel, ownership and operating costs
  • Better environmental profile

Eligible equipment

  • Class 1 electric motor rider trucks: counterbalanced rider, stand-up, 3-wheel or 4-wheel sit-down, cushion or pneumatic tires
  • Class 2 electric motor narrow aisle trucks: order picker, high lift straddle, side loaders, turret trucks, high- or low-lift pallet 

Let us help you choose the right forklift

  • What are the payback periods?
  • What are the lifecycle costs?
  • Do I need conventional or fast charging?
