Client: Citizens Action Coalition of Indiana
Bryndis Woods and Nina Schlegel
On behalf of the Citizens Action Coalition of Indiana, Researchers Bryndis Woods and Nina Schlegel prepared a policy brief that compares the energy efficiency programs of five investor-owned utilities in Indiana: Duke Energy, Indiana Michigan Power Company (I&M), Indianapolis Power and Light Company (IPL), Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO), and Southern Indiana Gas & Electric Company d/b/a Vectren Energy Delivery (Vectren). The policy brief presents side-by-side comparisons of Indiana’s investor-owned electric utilities’ sales, energy efficiency savings and program costs from 2012 to 2019. This brief serves as a companion to two forthcoming Applied Economics Clinic publications that investigate the impact of two Indiana legislative developments: the 2014 repeal of its energy efficiency program through passage of the Senate Enrolled Act 340 and the approval of its Transmission Distribution and Storage Improvement Charge (TDSIC) state statute, which was passed in 2013 with the Senate Enrolled Act 560.
This policy brief is one of two AEC publications on behalf of Citizens Action Coalition and Energy Foundation that investigate the impact of Indiana's 2014 repeal of its energy efficiency program through passage of the Senate Enrolled Act 340.
