Countless nuclear waste shipments will crisscross Indiana’s roads if plans for the country’s first nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain in Nevada advance.

The final evaluation report for former Governor Daniels’ statewide energy efficiency program, Energizing Indiana, was filed this week at the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission and presented bittersweet news for the State of Indiana and Hoosier consumers. The report confirms that the Indiana General Assembly and Governor Mike Pence’s decision to cancel the programs in 2014 was a monumental and tragic mistake that has cost the State of Indiana thousands of jobs and will drive up monthly bills for already struggling Hoosier consumers.
It is CAC’s firm belief that energy must be safely and reliably delivered to Hoosiers at the least-cost possible. Consumer-oriented energy policies that create investment in renewables and energy efficiency make sense as the costs of coal and nuclear energy become more expensive.
