Voluntary Clean Energy Standards
Indiana law allows regulated electric utilities to qualify for financial incentives if they meet specific targets for including “clean energy resources” (as defined in a 2011 law) in their generation and supply portfolios.
The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) approved a permanent rule on June 14, 2012.
A temporary rule created the Indiana Voluntary Clean Energy Portfolio Standard Program in late 2011 (as required by law).
The Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor (OUCC), other consumer organizations, the renewable energy industry and regulated electric utilities participated in the 2011 and 2012 rulemaking processes.

Comments from all parties in this proceeding (IURC Rulemaking No. 11-05) are available on the IURC Website.
The law requiring the Commission to create a voluntary clean energy standards program for Indiana electric utilities is Indiana Code 8-1-37.
