Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) is offering customers more ways to save money and conserve energy by extending energy efficiency programs.
The programs are available to all NIPSCO electric customers and will replace the state-wide Energizing Indiana programs. They are set to expire at the end of 2014. Popular residential programs such as the Energy Efficiency Rebate Program, the New Construction Program and Low Income Weatherization Program will continue.
NIPSCO is proposing to combine the Home Energy Assessment and Weatherization Program in an effort to streamline these offerings, making it easier for customers to participate. An expanded pilot program for income-qualified customers is also part of the plan. Changes to NIPSCO’s energy efficiency programs for gas customers are not being proposed in this filing.
Through these programs, NIPSCO expects residential customers to save 49.5 million kilowatt hours (hWh) in 2015. The program offerings still require state regulatory approval. For information about all energy efficiency offerings available to NIPSCO customers, visit https://www.nipsco.com/save-energy
