Vectren Energy Efficiency Plans

Vectren’s electric utility is offering energy efficiency programs under IURC orders issued in October 2014 and March 2016.

In the most recent case (IURC Cause No. 44645), the OUCC recommended denial of Vectren’s request to recover lost revenues and shareholder incentives through rates. The IURC’s March 2016 order approved the recovery of lost revenues through customer rates, capping the recovery at a 4-year period. It also approved shareholder incentives. In a March 2017 opinion, the Indiana Court of Appeals remanded the case to the IURC for further proceedings. Vectren filed supplemental testimony with the Commission in June 2017.

In IURC Cause No. 44927, Vectren is seeking approval of an energy efficiency plan for 2018 through 2020. The OUCC has filed testimony (Rutter and Thacker) recommending denial of the plan as proposed.

Evidentiary hearings in both cases have concluded. The parties will file written closing arguments in September and October.
