Northern Indiana Public Service Co. will continue to upgrade the electric and gas infrastructure across northern Indiana with nearly $660 million in planned investments this year. The reinvestment is part of NIPSCO’s ongoing modernization plan to ensure long-term safety and reliability for customers. 

After more than 60 years, systems are nearing the limits of their original design, and NIPSCO says it wants to address them before they become problematic.   

Some of the areas it will focus on are:

  • 1,776 wooden utility poles and 86 miles of overhead electrical transmission lines;
  • 162,000 feet of underground electrical cable lines, 18 power transformers and 98 circuit breakers;
  • 7,393 existing streetlights to energy-efficient, long-lasting LED lights;
  • 10 miles of natural gas pipeline and upgrades to  natural gas regulator stations;
  • Continued program to expand natural gas in-line inspection technology and system capabilities.

“Energy is essential to the daily lives and businesses across the communities we serve, and our customers’ future depends on having a safe, reliable and sustainable infrastructure,” said Violet Sistovaris, NIPSCO president. “We’re being proactive and planning for the future by upgrading and replacing critical parts of our infrastructure to ensure a modern system for our growing communities.”
