Indianapolis needs a moral awakening from Indianapolis Power & Light.
We want IPL to be actively concerned about poverty and pollution and not just profit and political power.
IPL's current rate hike request hurts Indianapolis area families who are already struggling to pay high electricity bills. IPL’s monthly bills increased 45% during the last decade for the average customer, even though incomes in Indianapolis declined 8%.
Meanwhile, IPL continues to ask Indianapolis families to bail out the super-polluting Petersburg Generating Station, a coal-burning power plant that is hurting the planet, Hoosier health, and draining tens of millions of dollars from Indianapolis. Research shows that phasing out, not bailing out, Petersburg could save IPL customers over eighty million dollars, let alone the public health and environmental devastation caused by Petersburg.
