NIPSCO Planning to Take Over 'Energize Indiana' Programs

Former Governor Mitch Daniels' "Energize Indiana" energy-efficiency programs may be ending, but NIPSCO has its own plan ready to take over in its place. 

NIPSCO spokesman Nick Meyer says the Merrillville-based utility's proposal would extend the features of "Energize Indiana" to at least 2015.   The current energy rebates, home energy assessment and air conditioning efficiency programs are included in the new plan.  Through these programs, NIPSCO expects residential customers to save 49.5 million kilowatt hours in 2015. 

Meyer says an opt-out provision for larger commercial and industrial customers is also included, as many of NIPSCO’s large customers have already implemented and continue to invest in energy efficiency measures outside of the standard utility programs.

NIPSCO has been offering energy-efficiency programs to its electric customers since 2009 and for natural gas customers for many years before then.
