NIPSCO to Replace Coal with 2.3 GW of Solar, Storage in Latest RFP

The Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) announced on Oct. 1 a request for proposals for 300 MW of wind, 2,300 MW of solar and solar-plus-storage projects, as well as an undefined amount for other capacity resources.
NIPSCO seeks to retire the bulk of its coal generation capacity by 2023, and its October 2018 Integrated Resource Plan identified cheaper alternatives in renewables paired with storage.
