Welcome to the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission
The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (Commission) is an administrative agency that hears evidence in cases filed before it and makes decisions based on the evidence presented in those cases. An advocate of neither the public nor the utilities, the Commission is required by state statute to make decisions in the public interest to ensure the utilities provide safe and reliable service at just and reasonable rates.
The Commission also serves as a resource to the legislature, executive branch, state agencies, and the public by providing information regarding Indiana’s utilities and the regulatory process. In addition, Commission members and staff are actively involved with regional, national, and federal organizations regarding utility issues affecting Indiana.

Net Metering - Information and Documents Regarding the Upcoming Deadline
After hosting a Technical Conference in July and receiving comments from stakeholders and business owners, the Commission has determined that October 19, 2017, is the first deadline in the maximum allowed timeline in the interconnection rule for Level 1 and Level 2 reviews that are applicable to net metering. This was approved in its General Administrative Order, GAO 2017-2, "Guidance Regarding Indiana Code § 8-1-40-14 and Commission Rules." Because this deadline is approaching this month, the Commission has compiled information and documents regarding net metering and distributed generation, and includes links to utilities' interconnection and net metering agreements and applications.
