Damage Claims

From time to time, forces of nature and other factors can interrupt service and cause damage to a home or business. Most commonly, damage is caused by storms, high winds and lightning or equipment failure. In these cases, IPL is not responsible for reimbursing a claim. In many instances, damage is more likely to be covered by a home owner's, or other type of insurance policy.

Please note, IPL is not responsible for any damage loss or injury caused by:

  • Accidents
  • Equipment Failure
  • Riots
  • Fires
  • Loss or fluctutation of voltage, including single phasing
 
  • Breakdowns
  • Short circuits
  • Vandalism
  • Flood
  • Any cause beyond the control of the Company
 
  • Line failure
  • Explosion
  • Nature (storms, lighting, animals, etc.)
  • Strikes
 

 

IPL evaluates claims on a case-by-case basis in a fair and professional manner. Determination of any compensatory award is based upon factual detail and in accordance with tariffs and guidelines on file with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC).

Continuity of Service (Rule 23.3 and Rule 24.2)

In our “Rates, Rules and Regulations for Electric Service” on file with the IURC, Rule 23.2 states: ”...If the Customer is installing sensitive electronic equipment which requires a continuous power supply, it is his responsibility to provide for this need...” Rule 24.2 states: “The Company shall not be liable for damages resulting to the Customer, or to third persons, from the use of electricity, interruption of service or supply, or the presence of the Company’s property on the Customer’s premises, unless due to willful default or neglect on the part of the Company.”
