Townsend propane customers could see lower rates from NorthWestern Energy

NorthWestern Energy has filed for an interim decreased supply rate for about 600 Townsend customers with the Montana Public Service Commission, the utility company announced Thursday.

A request for proposal is issued annually by NorthWestern Energy for the propane supply for Townsend customers. This year, the proposal selected from the request was for a propane supply at a lower cost than the previous year, a company spokeswoman said.

If approved by the 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).
