NIPSCO says it is providing incentives for businesses to make energy saving upgrades in Northern Indiana.
There are five energy efficiency programs offered through the utility provider. To date, NIPSCO has provided incentives for 528 projects at 348 companies in Northwest Indiana.
Among the participants are two communities in Whiting and Crown Point that chose to upgrade their facilities for higher efficiency. According to a press release, NIPSCO says the energy savings experienced in Crown Point is enough to power 27 homes.
Incentives exist for new construction, HVAC upgrades, and lighting.
So far, NIPSCO says they have issued more than $1-million in incentives through their programs.
