Senior Researcher Tyler Comings filed testimony on the cost of Duke Energy Indiana’s coal fleet in Cause No. 45253 before the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. Mr. Comings concluded that the Edwardsport plant was uneconomic and should be retired as soon as possible. He also recommended disallowances of costs associated with the coal fleet, a requirement for evaluating earlier retirement of the units, and that the Commission open an investigation into Duke’s “self-commitment” of its coal units and the practice's impact on customers.
