NorthWestern Energy Files to Lower Propane Supply Rate in Townsend, Montana

Apr 29, 2016

Butte, Mont. – April 29, 2016 – NorthWestern Energy has filed with the Montana Public Service Commission (MPSC) a request to adjust propane supply costs in Townsend, Montana, on an interim basis beginning on June 1, 2016, pending final MPSC approval.  

Propane supply costs are adjusted on an annual basis based on the contracted market supply price along with any over or under-collection of the previous year’s contract.

If approved, the summer rate, including supply and delivery charges, will decrease from $1.03 per gallon (equivalent of $1.13 per therm) to $.91 per gallon (equivalent of $99 cents per therm) and the winter rate will decrease from $1.08 per gallon (equivalent of $1.18 per therm) to $1.03 per gallon (equivalent of $1.12 cents per therm).

The overall cost adjustments translate into a total bill decrease of $3.98 per month during the summer season for a typical residential customer using 30 therms and a decrease of $4.78 per month during the winter heating season for a typical residential customer using 80 therms. The actual decrease will depend on each customer’s usage.

NorthWestern has 584 propane customers in Townsend.
