NIPSCO electric rates are, on average, below the national average. Electric rates are better with a higher load factor. Given the same load factor, the rates are better the more electricity you use.

  • For small usage, the current cost per kwh is 10.0 to 10.8 cents.
  • For higher usage, the current cost per kwh is 6.8-9.8 cents.

(These all assume 85% power factor. Estimates are based on the rates currently in effect (as of February 2011), and on the actual trackers and fuel adjustment charges from the last twelve months. As these trackers and fuel adjustment charges change, these electric rates could vary by up to 5-15 cents per kwh. NIPSCO is in the middle of a rate case filed at the IURC for an approximate 8% increase in rates, not included in these estimates.)

  • For small usage, the current range is 70-90 cents per therm.
  • For large usage, the current range is 65-70 cents per therm.
  • These estimates are based on the current (February 2011) billing determinants. As determinants change, these gas rates could vary by up to 1 cent per therm.
