INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana's Utility Consumer Counselor says an electric car-sharing program will cost customers of Indianapolis Power & Light Co. more than a third less under a settlement his office has reached with the utility.

Counselor David Stippler says the settlement filed Thursday with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission reduces the average cost per month per average household to 28 cents rather than 44 cents.

The initial rate increase request from the utility and the city sought $16 million from ratepayers to install charging stations and other equipment and to extend power lines to them.

Executive Director Kerwin Olson of the consumer advocacy group Citizens Action Coalition tells the Indianapolis Business Journal he still opposes allowing IPL to bill customers for a service that will be used by a few people.
