IPL offers useful resources to help with summer electricity bills

September 14, 2016

INDIANAPOLIS —Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), offers convenient and easy billing and payment resources available for customers to help bear the burden of the extremely hot and humid summer months.

The month of August was unusually hot and humid with nine days of temperatures 90 degrees or warmer. The increase in temperatures and humidity can also cause an increase in energy usage from air conditioners and other appliances. Increased usage can lead to an increase in electric bills.

In order to help our customers manage their bills after the hot and humid summer months, IPL offers the following resources:

  1. Budget Billing allows customers to pay the same amount for 11 months and then settle the difference on the 12th month.
  2. Preferred Billing Date allows customers to choose a date that works best with their pay days and cash flow.
  3. Payment Extensions can be requested online or by calling the automated system at 317.261.8222 and selecting option 2 from the main menu.
  4. IPL PowerToolsSM programs can be found at IPLpower.com/PowerTools, and are available to help customers reduce their household’s energy use.

Information on all of IPL’s payment and billing options can be found by going to IPLpower.com.
