Indianapolis Power and Light will spend millions to reduce emissions at the Harding Street power plant and at another plant in the southwestern part of the state.

It’s a move that could cost consumers, a 2 to 3 percent annual increase, over a number of years. IPL is looking to charge customers to cover the cost.

The company said more than $500 million has to go to reduce mercury emissions to comply with EPA regulations.

    they say 2-3, which means its gonna be more like 6-7, if were lucky. i remember when this one guy said, "under my plan, energy costs will necessarily skyrocket"… but im sure this has nothing to do with that

    Good, it's about time. Utility costs SHOULD increase by a small percentage every year to mirror inflation and COLA increases. We shouldn't be paying the same rates for water/wastewater/gas/electricity that we did 10 years ago.

    CO2 is not an emission…Drink that Kool-Aide..go ahead…
    Rhondaleebaby69 wants to pay higher amounts…I don't mind that much either…except we are paying for pseudo-science and Eco-politics.
