IPL to apply federal tax savings to Regulatory Rate Review to lower overall request

February 16, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.— Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), filed today an update to its Regulatory Rate Review request with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) lowering the requested increase by nearly $30 million, as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The typical residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours per month will pay approximately $2.50 less per month than previously expected if approved by the IURC.

“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 gives IPL the ability to provide a benefit to customers by reducing our rate request while continuing to provide safe and reliable service to our customers” said Ken Zagzebski, President and Chief Executive Officer, IPALCO Enterprises, IPL’s holding company.  “This reform created the opportunity to pass federal tax savings along to our 490,000 customers and will help us solidify our position as having one of the lowest residential rates among investor-owned utilities.”

If approved by the IURC, new rates will become effective by the first quarter of 2019. For more information on how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 may affect your bill, visit IPLpower.com/answers to use our rate calculator.
