Development of NIPSCO’s integrated Resource Plan

CRA has been supporting NIPSCO, an Indiana utility owned by NiSource, with integrated resource planning since 2017.  Today, CRA is leading the development of NIPSCO’s 2021 integrated resource plan.  In the 2018 IRP, CRA led NIPSCO to a difficult decision to announce retirement of its entire coal portfolio and replacement with a portfolio of renewables and storage that provided a much better fit for the company’s objectives.
