NIPSCO Lowers Requested Gas Rate Increase, Citing Federal Tax Reform

NIPSCO gas bills would still go up but not by quite as much, under an updated request with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. The company says residential gas customers now paying $50 per month could expect to see their monthly bill increase to $58.10, rather than $59.80, as originally proposed.

NIPSCO says the original proposal was made back in September and is four months into a review process. Company officials expect a decision from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission during the second half of 2018.

They say the lower increase is due to the federal tax reform. Similar adjustments to electric rates are also being considered, according to NIPSCO.
