The IURC has approved a rate settlement agreement between Crawfordsville Electric Light & Power (CEL&P) and the OUCC. The agreement will allow for an annual increase of about $4.7 million.

Our infographic outlines the steps in a rate case. The OUCC invited consumer comments in October 2020. The OUCC fact sheet distributed at the case's Oct. 29, 2020 field hearing offers additional information.

Electric utilities can also adjust rates due to changes in wholesale power costs. Those costs can only be recovered on a dollar-for-dollar basis. OUCC review and IURC approval are required.

As of July 2023, Crawfordsville's typical monthly residential electric bill ranks 5th-highest among the 12 electric utilities the IURC regulates.
