IPL has filed petitions with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to install $100 million worth of pollution controls at Petersburg, a move it says will allow it to meet strict environmental regulations.
Joe Hogsett said more streetlights, for safer streets, would be one of his first priorities as mayor. Nearly four months after taking office, the administration is still in discussions with Indianapolis Power & Light Co.
Indianapolis Power & Light has agreed not to raise the fixed monthly rate it charges most of its residential customers, under a rate-case settlement it reached with the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor and other stakeholders.
Democrat Jared Evans said the council members are hoping to “raise awareness” about the issue and persuade state regulators to drastically reduce the amount IPL raises its rates, “if they don’t decline this altogether.”
