Duke Energy Indiana is requesting that the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) approve four (4) solar energy Purchased Power Agreements ("PPAs") for 5 MWs each with Sullivan Solar LLC, McDonald Solar LLC, Pastime Farm LLC, and Geres Energy LLC for a total of 20 MWs of solar energy to be in commercial operation no later than March 31, 2016.

There will be four (4) solar energy sites within Duke Energy Indiana’s service territory: Sullivan County, Vigo County, Clay County and Howard County.

Duke requests the IURC to approve modification to its Go Green program (i.e., Duke Energy Indiana's Standard Contract Rider No. 56 ("GoGreen" or "GoGreen Rider") under the Alternative Regulatory Statute (Indiana Code §8-1-2.5-1 et seq.) to provide customers with an option to purchase locally sourced green power renewable energy credits ("RECs").

A prehearing conference to establish a procedural schedule has not been determined yet nor has Duke filed its case-in-chief or direct testimony to support their request.
