Advocates against cut to energy efficiency program

INDIANAPOLIS — Energy efficiency businesses and advocates are rallying against a bill that would kill a statewide program aimed at reducing energy use by Indiana homeowners and businesses.

A home-insulating business owner and the owner of an Indianapolis appliance recycling plant joined a handful of others in urging Indiana lawmakers to vote against the bill when the Senate votes Wednesday on the legislation.

The measure originally would have allowed industries that use 1 megawatt or more of electricity to pull out of the Energizing Indiana program. The House later changed the bill to prohibit the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission from extending or beginning new contracts with the program after this year.

The bill would also prevent the IURC from requiring an energy efficiency program or extending current regulations after this year.
