About this Event

Duke Energy filed a petition to increase its rates, which the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (“IURC”) granted in part. The Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counsel and consumer groups appealed and challenged the IURC’s approval of Duke Energy’s recovery of costs it had incurred to remediate coal ash ponds, allocation of costs between retail and wholesale consumers, and recovery of operating and maintenance costs for the Edwardsport facility. The Court of Appeals affirmed the IURC. Ind. Office of Util. Consumer Counselor v. Duke Energy Indiana, LLC, 169 N.E.3d 417 (Ind. Ct. App. 2021), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted transfer and assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
