Indiana 2015 IRP Stakeholder Engagement
Duke Energy Indiana has established a stakeholder engagement process to inform our 2015 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) in compliance with the proposed Commission IRP rule. Duke Energy Indiana has hired Dr. Marty Rozelle of The Rozelle Group, Ltd. to help design and facilitate the IRP stakeholder engagement process. She is an independent public participation specialist who regularly works with companies, government agencies, and local communities on stakeholder outreach activities.
Duke Energy Indiana has four main objectives for this stakeholder engagement process.
- Listen: Understand concerns and objectives.

- Consider: Provide a forum for productive stakeholder feedback at key points in the IRP process to inform Duke Energy Indiana's decision-making.
- Comply: Comply with the proposed Commission IRP rule.
