The company was formed from the merger of Indiana Gas Company (formed 1941) and Southern Indiana Gas and Electric Company (SIGECO, formed 1912). The two utilities' holding companies, Indiana Energy and SIGCORP, announced plans to merge in June 1999, and received final approval on March 9, 2000. In the fall of 2000, Vectren also acquired the natural gas distribution assets of Dayton Power and Light in western Ohio. In the fall of 2006, the company purchased Duke Energy's interest in Miller Pipeline.[4]
