Understand energy choice in Indiana
Only natural gas – not electricity – has energy choice in the state of Indiana. However, if NIPSCO is your local utility, you can choose from several competing natural gas suppliers to provide your gas supply. You can look into your natural gas supply options, compare prices and call a natural gas supplier to sign up for a plan that best fits your needs.

Regardless of whether you purchase your natural gas supply from NIPSCO or another gas supplier, NIPSCO will still deliver your natural gas supply, read your meter, respond to emergencies and maintain gas pipelines. The company remains your utility and will continue to provide its essential service.
If you choose a retail natural gas supplier, it's still important for you to know NIPSCO phone numbers in case of an emergency. You should call the NIPSCO phone number if you experience a power outage, see a down power line or notice a gas leak. If there is a gas-related emergency, be sure to get away from the area and call NIPSCO immediately.
