AWEA Applauds Vote On Amended Indiana Clean Energy Bill


The Indiana State Senate has voted 31-19 on a bill that incentivizes utilities to participate in a voluntary clean energy portfolio standard (CPS). The CPS' goal is that 10% of the state's electric generation is derived from clean energy sources by 2025.

S.B.251 includes an amendment that calls for at least 50% of the energy produced by Indiana utilities participating in the CPS to come from within the state.

‘I commend the Indiana legislature for setting a course toward more affordable, homegrown Hoosier energy,’ says Denise Bode, CEO of the American Wind Energy Association.

The House passed the amended bill with a vote of 62-34 on April 21. The bill now awaits the signature of Gov. Mitch Daniels, R-Ind.
