STATEHOUSE (Aug. 23, 2019) – The 21st Century Energy Policy Development Task Force on Monday will meet to discuss the current state of Indiana’s energy policies, according to State Rep. Ed Soliday (R-Valparaiso).

Soliday, co-chair of the task force, said the initial meeting will allow task force members, industry experts and consumer representatives to outline expectations and desired outcomes as the group begins to examine the state’s energy issues.

“We want to provide affordable, reliable and environmentally conscious electric utility service to Hoosier consumers, while also taking steps to advance new energy technologies,” Soliday said. “For this reason, it’s critical that we hear from key stakeholders as we strive to improve our energy policies.”

The task force is the result of House Enrolled Act 1278 from the 2019 legislative session. It was created to examine the best practices for the state’s energy generation and transmission and to make recommendations to the general assembly and the governor.

The 21st Century Energy Policy Development Task Force meets at 10 a.m. EST on Monday, Aug. 26, in the House Chamber at the Statehouse in Indianapolis. The meeting is open to the public, and the public will have the opportunity to provide input.
