Client: Citizens Action Coalition of Indiana and Earthjustice
Clinic Director and Senior Economist Liz Stanton, PhD and Anna Sommer with Sommer Energy, LLC published three evaluations of Indiana electric utilities’ Integrated Resource Plans (IRP) in 2017 including: Vectren Energy Delivery of Indiana, Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO), and Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL). IRPs are filed approximately every three years with the Utility Commission to demonstrate that utilities’ decisions to retire and/or add electric generation resources are in the public interest. On behalf of Citizens Action Coalition of Indiana, the Applied Economics Clinic provides comments on utility IRPs on an ongoing basis. Forthcoming IRP evaluations include: Duke Energy Indiana, Indiana Michigan Power IRPs, and a 2018 update to NIPSCO's IRP.
