Indianapolis Power & Light Co. (IPL) is offering a pilot Rate REP (Renewable Energy Production) as part of its demand-side management program. The REP rate, commonly called a “feed-in tariff,” is a payment for the production and renewable energy attributes associated with that production from renewable energy facilities. Renewable energy facilities eligible for IPL’s Rate REP include solar, wind, and biomass located in IPL’s territory. Biomass facilities include those that use crops grown specifically for energy production, organic waste biomass such as agricultural crops, wastes, wood and wood waste, animal waste, and aquatic plants.

The Rate REP is offered as a standard rate, although negotiated contract modifications are permitted as long as they follow Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission procedures. Facilities that take the Rate REP cannot net meter. IPL will offer this rate for three years and will limit participation to 1% of its retail electric sales (kWh) from the prior calendar year.
