(Michigan City, IN) - Michigan City Mayor Duane Parry is stepping up to the plate to argue against a proposed NIPSCO rate increase.
Parry said he will attend the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission Rate Increase Hearings in Indianapolis beginning March 13.
Parry said he felt an increase of 16.5% or $19.00 a month for average residential electric customers would be inappropriate and unfair.
If approved, the increase will begin in September of 2023.
Parry said such an increase would have a tremendous adverse impact on “citizens currently struggling to make ends meet.”
He will be asking the IURC to hold the current rate structure through 2025.
