The North Dakota Public Service Commission (PSC) will hold an informal hearing followed by a public input session regarding a request from Montana-Dakota Utilities (MDU) to update rates related to electric transmission revenue and costs.
The effect of the rate change on the bill for an average residential customer would be an increase of $3.35 per month or $40.20 per year. The increase is being proposed to cover costs associated with transmission-related services provided by Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) and Southwest Power Pool (SPP), along with new transmission projects.
Members of the public are encouraged to view and or/listen to the informal hearing. At the end of the hearing there will be a chance for public comments via telephone.
