AES Indiana is hosting a series of public forums to discuss the future of energy in Central Indiana.
The utility company submits an Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) to the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission every three years.
Spokesperson Kelly Young said the plan identifies a forward-looking 20-year portfolio for safe, reliable, and affordable energy to its more than 512,000 customers.
“This is helping us move toward cleaner energy resources and power efforts to support greener customer choices,” Young said.
In 2019, AES Indiana outlined a short-term action plan that included retiring coal generation by 2023.
The first of five public advisory meetings was held Monday. Other meetings will be held throughout the year.
The public is encouraged to register in advance of all meetings.
