Indiana Senate passes energy bill

The Indiana state Senate has concurred by a bipartisan vote of 31-19 on a bill that incentivizes utilities to participate in a voluntary Clean Energy Portfolio Standard (CPS), setting a goal of 10 percent of the state’s electric generation to come from clean energy sources by 2025.

SB 251 includes an amendment that calls for at least 50 percent of the energy produced by Indiana utilities participating in the CPS to come from within the state.

The House passed the amended bill with a bipartisan vote of 62-34 on April 21. The bill now awaits the signature of Governor Mitch Daniels.
