Feb. 2, 2022 - Public Input Sessions Xcel Natural Gas Rate Case (Noon and 5:30 pm)

The North Dakota Public Service Commission (PSC) will hold two remote public input sessions on Feb. 2, 2022. The sessions will be an opportunity for Xcel natural gas customers to provide comments regarding a request for an increase to their natural gas rates.

During the sessions, officials from Xcel will provide a presentation regarding their proposal and then public comments will be taken.  The proposed increase would result in an annual increase in its North Dakota gas service revenue of $7.1 million or 10.5 percent.

In keeping with recommendations of public health officials to minimize public gatherings while COVID is circulating and to make it easier for people to participate, this hearing will be held remotely and members of the public are encouraged to provide their comments in writing or by telephone.
