Better Utilities for a Better City
Each year, Citizens Energy Group invests hundreds of millions of dollars in its utility systems to ensure safety, reliability and protection of our environment. Our investments also provide thousands of good-paying jobs and support economic development across Central Indiana.
Citizens is making unprecedented investments in our community's water and wastewater (sewer) infrastructure leading to immeasurable benefits for the people and environment of Central Indiana.
Many of the investments we are planning are mandated under a Consent Decree with the federal government or otherwise required by federal or state laws. Higher utility rates will be necessary over the next decade to finance the more than $2 billion in investments required to ensure safe drinking water, system reliability and environmental protection.
While nobody likes higher utility bills, investments to provide clean drinking water and a cleaner environment are necessary to ensure a world-class city for future generations.
