Xcel Energy’s latest electric rate case is still before the North Dakota Public Service Commission – 11 months after it was filed.
Xcel is asking for a $16.9 million increase. It was granted interim rates in February, which raised a typical Xcel customer’s bill by $7 a month.
That compares with MDU’s latest rate case. MDU is seeking a natural gas rate increase. It filed the case in September, and it was granted an interim increase that would take effect this month. But PSC staff and the company have reached a tentative agreement, and the PSC will take a look at that.
