NIPSCO – headquartered in Merrillville, Indiana – has been with South Shore Clean Cities since the very beginning. South Shore Clean Cities got its start 20 years ago with the encouragement and support of NIPSCO.
NIPSCO is one of seven energy delivery companies of NiSource Inc. (NYSE: NI) who together provide essential natural gas and electric service to more than 4 million customers. With more than 821,000 natural gas customers and 468,000 electric customers across the northern third of Indiana, NIPSCO is the largest natural gas distribution company and the second largest electric distribution company in the state of Indiana.
NIPSCO is committed to being coal-free by 2028 and to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 90 percent by 2030. As part of that commitment, the utility earlier this year announced the first phase of its plans to transition to lower-cost renewable energy resources with the addition of four new Indiana wind farms to be tied into NIPSCO’s electric system serving nearly 600,000 electric customers. The utility is also seeking proposals for one of the largest solar energy procurements in the nation.
