For each customer who enrolls in NIPSCO's free paperless billing service between now and March 31, the company will donate $10 to Red Cross chapters across the state, to help provide critical services for people affected by disasters or coping with separation due to military assignments including:

•Community Disaster planning and preparedness.

•Disaster relief and recovery assistance for individuals and families.

•Emergency communication and financial support for military personnel and their families.

“We’ve all witnessed the devastating effects of natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy and other emergency events on a national scale,” NIPSCO CEO Jim Stanley said. “It’s important that we’re prepared if something happens in our own backyard. The Red Cross is the organization that can help and we’re pleased to support their efforts.”

“We thank NIPSCO and its customers for their support of the Red Cross mission and work in response to the needs of our community,” Red Cross CEO John Lyter said. “Whether we’re helping a family recover from a house fire, teaching people how they can be prepared for all types of emergencies, or assisting the nation’s military and their families at home, this partnership will help ensure the Red Cross is there for those who need us.”

Signing Up for Direct E-bill

is Free and Simple

The paperless billing option is a free and convenient way for customers to manage their account and help the environment at the same time. Simply visit and select “Manage Your Account” to sign up for free paperless Direct e-Bill services.

Instead of receiving a paper bill in the mail, customers receive an e-mail notification that their utility bill is available to view the same day it’s rendered.

E-bill customers can continue to mail their payment if they prefer. Or, they can pay their bill on-line at no charge and perform other business on their account, such as signing up for the Budget Payment Plan. The e-mail notification also includes a link to electronic versions of monthly bill inserts, customer newsletters and other important account information.
