April 24, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.— Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), has been named a 2018 Utility Environmental Champion by Market Strategies International’s Cogent Reports’ study, Utility Trusted Brand & Customer EngagementTM: Residental. Utility Environmental Champions were chosen based on survey responses from residential customers of 131 U.S. electric and natural gas companies.

 “It’s an honor to be recognized for the fourth year for our ongoing commitment to the environment,” said Craig Jackson, IPL President & CEO. “We have made significant strides to invest in innovative solutions like natural gas and energy storage, which will enable us to meet the needs of our customers with a greener and cleaner energy future.” 

The study placed IPL among 43 other electric and gas utilities achieving satisfaction among consumers for environmental efforts. IPL’s ranking reflects the extent to which customers believe IPL supports environmental causes, commitment to environmentally-friendly energy resources, encouragement of green initiatives and offering tools to help customers manage their energy usage. 

As IPL looks toward the future, we remain committed to being a good environmental leader, steward and neighbor in Central Indiana. IPL’s anticipated 2018 energy mix included diversification of generation resources with a bigger focus on natural gas while still utilizing coal, wind, and solar. Additionally, Indianapolis was recently recognized by the Environment America Research and Policy Center as #4 for the second year in a row in the U.S. for the amount of installed solar PV capacity per person.

IPL has also offered cost-effective energy efficiency programs for its customers on an uninterrupted basis since 1993. These programs remain an important element of IPL’s overall resource plan.
