NIPSCO Says Heat Bills Should Stay Normal

NIPSCO officials believe winter heating bills will remain flat compared to last year.

Weather predictions, market forecasts, supply trends and storage opportunities are put together in order to calculate a winter bill projection. Assuming that we’ll have normal winter temperatures, NIPSCO says this year’s bills will be among the lowest in a decade and only slightly below last year’s bills.

From Nov. 1 to March 31, NIPSCO’s residential customer using a total of 624 therms could expect to pay approximately $438. This will amount in a $2 savings from last year.
