North Dakota Energy and Renewable Adjustment

The North Dakota Energy and Renewable Adjustment reflects four costs. For additional information please refer to specific rate schedules.

The Energy Adjustment includes the cost of fuel we use to generate electricity to serve our retail customers, transportation costs for that fuel, and costs we incur to buy energy to supplement our own power plants, minus a base cost for energy that already is part of the per-kilowatt-hour rate you pay. As of December 2009 asset-based sales margins are included as a credit to the Energy Adjustment calculation.

The Renewable Resource Adjustment allows our company to recover costs associated with renewable energy facilities that we own. Those costs include operating and maintenance expenses, depreciation, income and property taxes, and a return on our investment. The energy generated by these facilities reduces the amount of fossil fuel and purchased energy necessary to meet our customers' needs.

Renewable Resource Cost Recovery Rider factor for bills rendered:
On or after March 1, 2018 7.493 percent
Renewable Resource Cost Recovery Rider factor for bills rendered:
From January 1, 2018 to February 28, 2018 7.756 percent

 

As of January 2011 the Economic Development Rider included on your electric service statement reflects a 0.025 cent per kWh reduction. This reduction is the result of the North Dakota Public Service Commission requesting in our last rate case that we remove from rates the costs associated with our economic development services. 

Economic Development Cost Removal Factor as of January 1, 2011
All Service - $ 0.00025 per Kilowatt-hour

The Transmission Cost Recovery Rider is a mechanism that allows our company to recover investments and expenses for transmission additions designed to meet customers' growing energy needs, accommodate the delivery of additional renewable energy, and enhance transmission system reliability.
