Energy must be safely and reliably delivered to Hoosiers at the least-cost possible. Consumer-oriented energy policies that create investment in renewables and energy efficiency make sense as the costs of coal and nuclear energy become more expensive.
AES is projecting that the price of fossil gas will be 288% higher for the months of September through November in 2022 than they were during the same period in 2021. AES Indiana has delayed transitioning to more affordable and clean energy solutions for years, and now Hoosiers are being asked to pay for those poor decisions through skyrocketing electricity bills.
These are the issues of immediate importance we are working on right now.
