The company has requested permission from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to modernize, replace and upgrade the three hydroelectric turbines, generators and related equipment which have been in service for nearly 50 years.

"The generating units at Markland Hydro have served our customers well with clean, renewable energy since 1967," said Melody Birmingham-Byrd, president of Duke Energy Indiana. "As we move toward increasingly cleaner energy, these modernized generation units will harness more of the renewable resources of the Ohio River for many years to come."

Work on the project could begin around mid-2016 and conclude by mid-2020.
