La PORTE — La Porte County officials are pushing back against a potential rate hike that several Indiana power companies – including NIPSCO – want to impose on customers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Wednesday, the La Porte County Board of Commissioners authorized attorney Shaw Friedman to formally file an intervention with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission opposing a possible rate increase from NIPSCO, Indiana Michigan Power Company and several other utilities, which are looking to recoup revenue lost due to the coronavirus outbreak.
