Call For Action! IUSA Members Ask Governor Holcomb to Sign SB 309!

 After passing both the House and Senate, SB 309 is now eligible to be signed into law by Governor Holcomb. SB 309 makes certain all electric customers pay for the grid they use. IUSA members are asking Governor Holcomb to sign SB 309 and create sound energy policy for Indiana going forward. You can send Governor Holcomb a message by clicking this link:

 Everyone should contribute to the grid they use. Even self-generating customers with solar panels need the grid to send their excess energy back to their energy company or when the sun isn't shining. Because of current Indiana laws, self-generating customers don't pay their full share of grid costs and pass them onto you, resulting in higher energy costs for you.

 Tell Governor Holcomb to sign SB 309 into law to establish certainty for all electric customers and ensure that customers who use the electric grid pay their share of costs to maintain it. Click the link below to ask Governor Holcomb to sign SB 309 into law.

Tell Your Representative to Support SB 309!

 Senate Bill 309 will work to establish an equitable system for self-generation of energy for both customers who own self-generation units, like wind and solar, and for customers who don't. By putting in law a favorable rate of return for self-generating customers who sell their excess energy back to their energy company, while making sure customers who don't self-generate won't have higher costs to maintain the grid shifted to them, SB 309 establishes that equitable system.

Continued Growth for Self-Generation

  As the cost of private energy generation starts to come down, some states are cutting compensation to self-generating customers who sell their excess power back to their energy company.
  Indiana is still a place where self-generation is being supported by energy companies and Senate Bill 309 will preserve the higher retail rate paid to self-generating customers for many years to come. Additionally, Senate Bill 309 puts into place a transition that won't financially burden customers that don't self-generate in the future. 

  Senate Bill 309 establishes certainty for all customers as more and more of them decide to generate their own energy.
