In 2014, Indiana Michigan Power Company (I&M) requested IURC approval of a long-term plan for electric transmission, distribution and storage system improvements, including incremental rate recovery of those costs as the projects proceed. I&M has filed its request under a law (Senate Enrolled Act 560) passed by the Indiana General Assembly in 2013.
The OUCC filed testimony on January 12, 2015 recommending partial denial of I&M's requested rate recovery. Please see the agency's news release for a summary.
