Indiana Distributed Energy Advocates (IDEA) is planning to participate in the rulemaking process intended to implement a new law enacted by the 2011 Indiana General Assembly. IDEA will be forming a Task Force and will work with other groups and organizations with similar interests in renewable energy and distributed generation. State legislators have given the Commission a great deal of latitude in tying up the loose ends and to make sense out of this voluntary approach to encourage Indiana electric utilities to invest in renewable energy resources in the State of Indiana.
