Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balan


Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On November 14, 2012, Wisconsin Power and Light Company ("WPL"), a subsidiary of Alliant Energy Corporation, entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA), Inc., as representatives of the several underwriters listed therein (the "Underwriters"), pursuant to which WPL agreed to sell, and the Underwriters agreed to purchase, subject to the terms and conditions set forth therein, $250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of WPL's 2.25% Debentures due 2022 (the "Debentures"), in a public offering (the "Offering"). The Offering closed on November 19, 2012. The description of the Underwriting Agreement set forth above is qualified by reference to the Underwriting Agreement filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

The Debentures will be issued under an Indenture (the "Indenture"), dated as of June 20, 1997, between WPL and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Trustee (the "Trustee"), pursuant to an Officers' Certificate, dated as of November 19, 2012 (the "Certificate"). The Certificate provides, among other things, that the Debentures will bear interest at a rate of 2.25% per year (payable on May 15 and November 15 of each year, beginning on May 15, 2013), and will mature on November 15, 2022. Prior to August 15, 2022 (three months prior to their redemption), WPL may redeem the Debentures as a whole or in part, at WPL's option, at a "make-whole" redemption price, plus accrued interest to the date of redemption. On or after August 15, 2022 (three months prior to their maturity), WPL may redeem the Debentures as a whole or in part, at WPL's option, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Debentures to be redeemed, plus accrued interest to, but excluding, the date of redemption. Additionally, in the event that the purchase of the Riverside Energy Center ("Riverside") is not consummated on or prior to the earlier of (i) April 1, 2013, or (ii) the date either party to the Tolling Agreement, dated as of February 6, 2001, as amended, including by Amendment No. 3 to Tolling Agreement, dated as of November 30, 2011 (collectively, the "Tolling Agreement"), provides notice of its intent to terminate the option to purchase Riverside pursuant to the Tolling Agreement, the Debentures will be redeemed by the Company in whole at a price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Debentures then outstanding, plus accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date or, if no interest has been paid, from the date of the original issuance to, but excluding, the date the Debentures are redeemed. The Indenture and the Certificate contain customary events of default. If an event of default occurs and is continuing with respect to the Debentures, then the Trustee or the holders of at least 25% of the principal amount of the outstanding Debentures may declare the Debentures to be due and payable immediately. The description of the Certificate set forth above is qualified by reference to the Certificate filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.



Item 8.01. Other Events.

The Debentures are registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, pursuant to an automatic shelf Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-178577-01) that WPL filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").
