July 29, 2024, Public Input Sessions (Noon and 5:30pm)- Xcel Natural Gas Rate Case

The North Dakota Public Service Commission (PSC) will hold two public input sessions on Monday July 29, which will allow participants to view the sessions and provide comments in person or virtually. 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 natural gas service revenue of approximately $8.5 million or 9.4 percent. The proposed rate increase would affect rates for all of Xcel’s retail natural gas customers in North Dakota.

Details for viewing/listening to the public input sessions are as follows:
