Title_Investments That Matter
Vectren’s power plants in Posey County and Warrick County provide safe, reliable power to 142,000 customers in southwestern Indiana. Over the past decade, these local plants have become among the cleanest coal-fired generation units in the Midwest thanks to $410 million in pollution control equipment.

These investments have dramatically improved local air quality and put Vectren’s plants in position to readily comply with more stringent Environmental Protection Agency rules – while neighboring utilities spend billions of dollars to catch up or shut down their uncontrolled units.
