Iowa Area Development Group

Access Energy Cooperative is active in economic development efforts not only in our service area, but for the entire state of Iowa as well. We have a very powerful partnership with an organization called the Iowa Area Development Group (IADG), an organization developed in 1985 to serve businesses interested in expanding or locating within the member-owned and municipal electric service areas of Iowa.

Hundreds of expanding companies have entrusted IADG with their site selection needs. They assist in areas such as site selection, data standards, financial packaging, permitting assistance, a service called Questline for manufacturers, as well as many other functions to assist in business retention, expansion and recruitment.
