Summer Power Consumption Expected To Make Dramatic Increase

Last updated on Tuesday, May 24, 2011

(UNDATED) - Indiana electric companies predict this summer’s power consumption could be the highest in four years; a sign that the economy is on the rebound.

NIPSCO COO Michael Finissi says his company is planning for another 3% increase this year, but wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't happen.

Indianapolis power and light predicts a slight dip from last year, but still above the two recession years which preceded it.

Between purchase contracts and their own generating capacity, both utilities predict no trouble meeting demand.
