Public Comment Sought on Upgrade Plan

Share this post

Indiana's utility consumer representative is taking public comment on a one-billion dollar proposal by NIPSCO to upgrade its electric system. The plan that would include replacing poles and transformers could mean yearly one-percent electric bill increases in the coming years. The Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor says the Merrillville-based utiity giant's request is the first to be filed under a new law, Senate Enrolled Act 560, passed by the legislature this year. The measure allows utilities to pay for certain infrastructure improvements through surcharges called "trackers" added to customer bills.
