HB 182 by Rep. Laurie Bishop (D-Livingston) would change the amount of money NorthWestern Energy could collect from customers when it fails to accurately project its expenses. The bill would amend a grossly unfair law that allows NorthWestern to collect 90% of the costs above its projected costs from customers and only requires the company’s shareholders to pay 10%, thus eliminating the impetus for the utility to make accurate projections. HB 182 would allow the Public Service Commission to determine how much over cost projections the electric utility’s shareholders must pay instead of utility customers.
