Utility Wins Rate Adjustment

The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission approved a natural gas rate adjustment for Montana-Dakota Utilities.

Commission Vice Chair Chris Nelson said they agreed to a rate change, and also to allow two units of the utility to be combined…

Bills for MDU customers could go up or down, depending where they live…

MDU serves natural gas customers in the Black Hills, and also in an area from Mobridge through Ft Pierre.

Nelson says they have to balance a number of interests in any rate case…

MDU serves about fifty four thousand customers in its two South Dakota units.
