North Dakota Xcel Energy customers will shortly see a credit on their utility bills.
But how much that credit will be isn’t known.
The Public Service Commission approved Xcel’s plan to use the fuel cost rider on the bill.
"That's in order to pass on to customers the financial settlement from General Electric, related to a turbine failure at NSP's Sherco Three generator," said PSC Chairman Brian Kroshus.
The Sherco plant is in Becker, Minnesota.
The failure happened in 2011. Kroshus said it was due to a design flaw.
