Citizens Energy Group recently received Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) approval to raise its rates and charges for water and sewer service.

Water rate case

In a March 19, 2014 order, the IURC granted Citizens Energy Group a water rate increase of approximately 9 percent. By comparison, the utility had requested a 14.7 percent increase with the OUCC recommending limiting the increase to about 3 percent.

The OUCC's news releases on the Commission order and on the agency's June 2013 testimony offer additional information.

Sewer rate case

The IURC's April 23, 2014 order modified a settlement agreement between the OUCC and Citizens, granting a sewer rate increase of approximately $50 million. By comparison, the utility originally requested a $56.7 million increase while the OUCC recommended a $46.5 million increase in its August 2013 testimony.

For more information, please see the OUCC's news releases on its August testimony and the Commission order.


A public field hearing in both rate cases was held on May 16, 2013. The OUCC issued a May 6, 2013 news release to publicize the hearing and invite consumer comments.
