Working with NIPSCO

We look forward to partnering with you on your project from the subdivision development to the building of the home. Whichever project you are working on will require NIPSCO field crews or Service persons in different phases. Those phases could be delivering equipment/ material, installing gas mains/electric cables, energizing cables/transformers, trenching/running the service line to finally setting the meter. At times, we may need to send our crews to emergency situations. We look forward to servicing your utility needs.
