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. Effective February 1, 2019, each service category (listed below) will have its own rate.
