Tell the IURC we won’t tolerate Duke’s huge rate hike!

Duke wants more of your money. Here’s how you can fight back!

Duke Energy Indiana is asking the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) to charge you even more for the electricity you use.

Over the past decade, the average Duke bill has increased by more than $300 per year. Now, they want to raise your bill by an additional 19% over the next few years! If Duke has their way, customers like you will keep feeling the squeeze while their profits continue to soar.

Even worse, the proposed hikes will hurt rooftop solar by charging more for using less electricity and will force customers to keep paying for the uneconomical and dirty Edwardsport coal-fired plant until 2045!

But starting next week, we have three chances to tell the IURC directly that we’re tired of Duke’s rate hikes.

The IURC field hearings are the best opportunity for Duke customers around the state to fight back against Duke’s attempts to take more and more out of your wallet. We need Indiana’s solar movement to show up and tell the IURC to:

  • Reject this rate increase request;
  • Reject the attempt to force customers to continue paying for Duke’s bad dirty investment in the Edwardsport plant through 2045; and
  • Reject Duke’s plan to continue using the declining block rate structures that charge you more for using less.
