NorthWestern Energy Challenges Ruling

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - NorthWestern Energy is challenging a ruling that requires the company to repay large customers in Montana millions of dollars in overcharges.

Company officials say they disagree with an April 17th ruling by the Federal Regulatory Commission that it charged industrial plants and electric co-ops too much to transmit power.

Officials say electric customers, such as homeowners and commercial business owners should be affected. But, a lawyer for the large customers said they have argued that NorthWestern's retail customers should pay a larger share of the disputed power-transmission costs.
