NIPSCO files for rate increase with Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission

On October 1, Northern Indiana Public Service Company, a NiSource Inc. company, submitted a request seeking to adjust electric base rates.

Under NIPSCO’s filing, residential electric bills would rise by $10.53 a month from $91.63 to $102.16, based on the typical amount used by customers.

The change in rates must go through a regulatory review by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC), and, if approved, will take effect in mid-2016.

NIPSCO’s request includes evidence to support the requested increase. It also satisfies the terms of a previous requirement to file a case by the end of 2015.
