NIPSCO Electric: Gas Generation Proposal

NIPSCO's electric utility is requesting IURC approval to build and operate a 400-megawatt natural gas-fired power plant, and approval to recover the costs through rates. According to the utility's testimony, the construction and financing  would cost approximately $641.2 million. The utility is also proposing the creation of a new  tracker to recover the costs. The Generation Cost Tracker (GCT) mechanism would be adjusted every 6 months.

All publicly filed documents in this case (Cause No. 45947) are available on the IURC's website.
