IPL tax settlement approved by Indiana utility regulators

September 6, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), received approval from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) to immediately begin crediting approximately $9.5 million back to customers over the next six months as a result of a settlement with all parties on the impact from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The typical residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours per month will pay approximately $1.50 less per month.

“The IURC’s approval of this credit for the 2018 impact of the reduction of the federal income tax rate ensures our customers timely benefit from federal tax reform,” said Craig Jackson, IPL President and CEO. “This reform will help us solidify our position as having one of the lowest residential rates among investor-owned utilities, while continuing to provide safe and reliable service to our 490,000 customers.” 

The $9.5 million is in addition to IPL’s recently proposed Regulatory Rate Review Settlement, which includes nearly $29 million of annual federal tax savings and an additional $14.3 million in deferred tax savings. IPL anticipates to receive a final order on its pending Regulatory Rate Review Settlement by the end of 2018.
