Judge upholds denial of rate increase to recover utility revenues lost to efficiency
from Utility Dive
A Montana district court judge has ruled to uphold an order from the state Public Service Commission (PSC) to deny NorthWestern Energy a proposed rate increase to recover lost revenues, The Associated Press reports. Northwestern sought the rate increase to recover the costs of unexpected outages and lost revenues due to energy efficiency programs. The judge found the PSC rejected the rate hike "based on substantive evidence and by doing so ensured reasonable and just rates," according to the AP.
