The Indiana General Assembly enacted Senate Enrolled Act 412 in May 2015, which amended Indiana Code § 8-1-8.5-3 concerning a statewide analysis of long-range needs for expansion of facilities for generation of electricity.
The law requires the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (Commission) to prepare a statewide analysis that includes (1) the probable future growth of the use of electricity; (2) the probable needed generating reserves; (3) in the judgment of the Commission, the optimal extent, size, mix, and general location of generating plants; (4) in the judgment of the Commission, the optimal arrangements for statewide or regional pooling of power and arrangements with other utilities and energy suppliers to achieve maximum efficiencies for the benefit of the people of Indiana; and (5) the comparative costs of meeting future growth by other means of providing reliable, efficient, and economic electric service, including purchase of power, joint ownership of facilities, refurbishment of existing facilities, conservation (including energy efficiency), load management, distributed generation, and cogeneration.
Pursuant to GAO 2018-2, Commission staff is seeking comments from any interested stakeholders on the Statewide Analysis. If possible, and if applicable to your comments, please include red-lined edits to the Word version of the draft Statewide Analysis.
Please provide written comments by August 17, 2018. Written comments may be submitted via email to email@example.com or by mail to:
