Gas decrease


The Wyoming Public Service Commission (Commission) approved the Application of Montana-Dakota Utilities Co. (MDU or the Company) to pass-on a wholesale commodity gas cost decrease of $1.321 per dekatherm (Dth) to its residential, general, small and large interruptible service customers, and optional seasonal customers, effective for usage on and after August 1, 2022. The proposed change is due to a decrease in the wholesale commodity price of natural gas and a small decrease in transportation capacity and pipeline-related costs.
The Company’s proposal results in a decrease of $1.85 or -5.53%, before taxes, for a typical residential customer using 1.4 Dth during August 2022. Actual bills will vary with usage.
Commission Rule Chapter 3, Section 26 allows a utility to pass-on, to its customers, known or projected commodity cost increases or decreases, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, subject to public notice, opportunity for hearing and refund.
MDU’s Application is available during regular business hours at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming or any time online at: (Enter Record No. 17107).
Anyone desiring to file a statement, intervention petition, protest, or request for hearing must file with the Commission in writing, on or before September 30, 2022. A proposed intervention or request for hearing shall set forth the grounds, the position and interest of the petitioner in this proceeding.
