NIPSCO's Renewable Energy Program Renewed

by | Mar 11, 2015
The Green Power Rate pilot program, which launched in May 2012, has received approval from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to continue as a long-term program.

The Green Power Rate pilot program, which launched in May 2012, has received approval from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to continue as a long-term program.

“We’re pleased to be able to extend this program beyond its original pilot for our customers,” said NIPSCO President Kathleen O’Leary. “It’s a great option for those who want to ‘go green’ without the expense of installing renewable technology on their homes or businesses.”

The program lets residential customers designate a percentage of their monthly electric usage, from 25, 50 or 100 percent, to be attributable to renewable energy sources. The program is also available to commercial and industrial clients, who have the added options of 5 or 10 percent of their monthly usage.

“It’s a great program. Being a green organization, it’s great to know that our energy is coming from green sources. We hope to bring more awareness to the program, and have our community members jump on board as well,” said Heather Pritchard, office manager of Save the Dunes, one of the oldest environmental protection groups in Indiana.

Once signed up, enrollees pay a monthly premium over NIPSCO’s standard electric rate. It works out to be approximately $2 a month for the average home. According to the utility company, that added cost has no mark up or financial return for them; they pass the cost of the program directly through.

NIPSCO ensures the electricity they are providing is attributable to renewable sources by purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), which are certified through Green-e Energy, a national organization whose purpose is to ensure RECs are properly sourced and claimed.
