Several of Indiana’s major employers and biggest cities are not happy with their energy options — they want more, and they want it cleaner.

That desire has prompted companies such Salesforce, Roche, Cummins and more to call on their utility providers to make it easier to get green power. 

These companies, along with the cities of Indianapolis and Bloomington, wrote a letter to Duke Energy and AES Indiana formally requesting the utilities offer more options for large customers to source their electricity from renewable energy. More specifically, they want what’s often called a Green Tariff. 

The tariff would let these cities and companies buy power produced from renewable energy that is locally produced. With that, this program would let the companies run with their goals to go green and meet sustainability targets.

“There is strong customer demand for clean energy in Indiana,” said Caryl Auslander, executive director of Advanced Energy Economy Indiana. AEE is a national association of businesses working to accelerate the transition to clean energy.
