Legislation that made its way to Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s desk would halt a state-run energy conservation plan. But a coalition opposing the bill is petitioning Pence for a veto.
Former Gov. Mitch Daniels created the Energizing Indiana plan in 2009 to increase the number of energy conservation programs available to rate payers throughout the state. The program also put in place mandatory energy savings benchmarks for private utility companies.
