OUCC Says New Edwardsport Plant Consumed More Energy Than It Produced

A state consumer protection agency says that the new Duke Energy power plant in Edwardsport, consumed more energy than it produced late last year. The Office of the Utility Consumer Counselor is trying to put the brakes on Duke's request for $1.5 million related to Edwardsport expenses that would be covered by customers, according to filing with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission.

The problem is the fuel expenses between September and November show that the plant required more energy to operate than it produced.

The state usually moves through fuel-cost cases quickly, but the OUCC wants more time to examine the issues. Duke says that they expected this at first but it should get better over the next year or so.
