The president of Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) says she is seeing a “real revolution” in the energy industry, and wants to make sure the utility is part of the movement. Violet Sistovaris says that’s much of the motivation behind the utility’s “Your Energy, Your Future” effort.
The goal is simple, but ambitious: cut coal dependency, which is currently about 65 percent, down to essentially zero over the next 10 years. Instead, NIPSCO will increase its pursuit of largely renewable energy resources, such as solar and wind energy, along with battery storage technology. She says the plan “envisions a brighter future that delivers the energy our customers need while reducing emissions and focusing on the long-term strength of our local economy.”
