Apr 22 Public Hearing in Crown Point for NIPSCO customers: Please attend!
Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) is requesting approval to install new pollution control equipment at its electric generating stations to reduce mercury and particulate matter emissions. The utility is also requesting approval to recover the construction costs through electric rates, with rate adjustments to be requested every six months.
In filings with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC), NIPSCO states that it is seeking the plan to comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Utility Mercury and Air Toxics Standard (MATS) rule. NIPSCO estimates the compliance plan's capital costs at approximately $59 million.
Written consumer comments are invited. In addition, an IURC public field hearing will be held on Monday, April 22, 2013 at the Lake County Government Center in Crown Point (2293 N. Main St.). The OUCC will hold an informational session on the regulatory process at 5:30 p.m. local time, with the formal hearing to start at 6:00 p.m. local time.
