A new natural gas fired power plant for Indianapolis Power and Light is up and running in Martinsville. The new plant replaces six coal fired plants, and cuts IPL’s emissions by over 90-percent, according to new IPL CEO Craig Jackson. Though the plant is up and running, IPL still has to pay for the it. Even after IPL investing over $600 million in the plant. This is why the utility company is still requesting a rate increase from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. The increase IPL is requesting would bump the average customer’s bill by about 11-dollars a month.
