STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA
Montana-Dakota Utilities Co.
Case No. PU-21-421
Generation Resource Cost
NOTICE OF OPPORTUNITY FOR HEARING
November 17, 2021
On November 1, 2021, Montana-Dakota Utilities Co. (MDU) filed a change to its Generation Resource Recovery Rate (GRRR) rates. The new rates reflect projected costs through December 31, 2022 related to investment in the Lewis & Clark reciprocating internal combustion engine units and reflect a projected over-collected balance of the current GRRR as of December 31, 2021.
The effect of the rate change on the bill for a residential customer using 894 kWh per month is a decrease of $0.03 per month.
The issues to consider in this proceeding are:
1. Whether the investments and associated costs for the resources qualify for recovery,
2. Whether the incurred costs are reasonable and prudent, and
3. Whether the rate adjustments are consistent with the terms of MDU's tariff.
Those interested are invited to comment on the application in writing. Persons desiring a hearing must file a written request identifying their interest in the proceeding and the reasons for requesting a hearing. Comments and requests for hearing must be received by January 1, 2022. If deemed appropriate, the Commission can determine the matter without a hearing.
