Butte, Mont. – May 4, 2023 – NorthWestern Energy has filed for an interim decreased supply rate for our approximately 600 Townsend customers with the Montana Public Service Commission.

If approved by the Montana PSC, the decrease for a typical residential customer using 55 therms per month will be on average $15.68 per month in the summer months, $9.04 per month in the winter months and $4.10 per month in the spring months.

NorthWestern Energy is proposing: a 28.4% decrease from $1.76603 per therm from June 1 to Sept. 30 to $1.26444 per therm, (or $1.15787 a gallon); a 20.1% decrease from $1.88883 per therm from Oct. 1 to March 31, 2024 to $1.50804 per therm (or $1.38095 per gallon), and an 18.6% decrease from $1.55550 per therm from April 1 2024 to May 31, 2024 to $1.26444 per therm (or $1.15787 a gallon).
