1, 2 NorthWestern Energy provides distribution services regardless of a customer’s choice of supplier and bills the customer for the regulated services.
3 Supply and Transmission Rates for Supply are regulated by the PSC. Prices for Choice Supply and Transmission are set by the competitive supplier with which the customer enters into a contract.
4 Electric and natural gas trackers allow Supply rates to increase or decrease based on changes to market prices. Actual costs are passed directly to customers without profit.
