AES is projecting that the price of fossil gas will be 288% higher for the months of September through November in 2022 than they were during the same period in 2021.

On August 11th, Citizens Action Coalition filed testimony before the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (“IURC”) in Cause No. 44792.

These are the issues of immediate importance we are working on right now.
