UPDATE: An IURC order in this case was issued on October 10, 2013.

Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) is requesting approval to install new pollution control equipment at its electric generating stations to reduce mercury and particulate matter emissions. The utility is also requesting approval to recover the construction costs through electric rates, with rate adjustments to be requested every six months.

In filings with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC), NIPSCO states that it is seeking the plan to comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Utility Mercury and Air Toxics Standard (MATS) rule. NIPSCO estimates the compliance plan's capital costs at approximately $59 million.

NIPSCO's filings include a petition (18 pages) along with testimony and exhibits (154 pages). For all publicly filed documents in this case, please visit the IURC's electronic document system and enter docket number 44311.
