MASON CITY, Iowa – To meet the growing demand for Cargill Kitchen Solutions high value further processed egg products, a new expansion to their Mason City plant was recently completed with the help of Interstate Power and Light Company, an Alliant Energy company.

Cargill Kitchen Solutions makes eggs great with entrees like omelets to portable breakfast wraps. In addition to providing the needed space for production, this recent expansion is designed with the environment in mind.

Energy-efficient coolers, rapid-close doors, and state-of-the art lighting all contributed to an annual savings of 2.5 million kilowatt hours. That’s enough energy saved to power 215 average homes for a year.

“We are very concerned about our impact on the environment, and using these new technologies, will help us use less energy, but still achieve the same amazing results,” said Troy Swanson, plant manager, Cargill Kitchen Solutions. “We value innovation and evolving technology as a way to use resources more wisely and helping everyone, reduce their carbon footprint.”

In addition to using less energy and saving money on energy costs, Alliant Energy presented a rebate check to the Cargill Kitchen Solutions for $177,267 for the labor and equipment.

“This is the second time in less than two years that Cargill Kitchen Solutions has taken advantage of our custom rebate program,” said Jim Collins, key account manager for Alliant Energy. “We offer many programs to help our customers compete and be successful, while still keeping energy conservation in mind.”

Alliant Energy offers numerous reward programs for residential, business, farm or commercial facilities in Iowa. Custom rebates are available for energy-savings projects that do not qualify for standard equipment rebates. Making energy-savings improvements in commercial facilities reduces energy use and results in lower energy bills for years to come.
