Energy Central (Journalistic Article)

SAMPLE TEXT: “Like cars, power stations require regular maintenance to ensure smooth operation. Indianapolis Power & Light (IPL) schedules regular station downtimes (called outages) to allow crews to perform needed work. While other power companies do so as well, many of them experience frequent scheduling delays that end up costing the utility (and ultimately customers) money. IPL’s exceptional planning program prevents such delays 90 percent of the time.”
