On August 11th, Citizens Action Coalition filed testimony before the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (“IURC”) in Cause No. 44792. In this proceeding, Indianapolis Power & Light (“IPL”) is seeking approval to continue their energy efficiency programs through calendar year 2017 and recover program costs, so-called lost revenues and financial incentives from their captive ratepayers.
A broad and diverse coalition of consumer, human service, and social justice organizations filed testimony yesterday in the rate case of Indianapolis Power & Light (IPL), currently pending before the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC), requesting that the IURC reject IPL’s proposed increase in the fixed monthly charge and asking that the IURC order IPL to create a low-income rate class to assist vulnerable Hoosier ratepayers in managing their monthly bills.
These continued incidents are putting the safety of the public at risk, bringing into question the reliability of electric service in Indianapolis, and adding significant costs and inconvenience to downtown businesses, residents and visitors. We believe these ongoing “accidents” are emblematic of a larger problem in Indiana.
These are the issues of immediate importance we are working on right now.
