The IR reports that Northwestern Energy is not going to increase rate as planned. I’ll be the first to say this is a good action, however, before we award them for their corportate responsibility, a few notes…
1. As the IR correctly notes, there has been a 35% increase since last summer, even without the new increase.
2. The shameful complaining by Northwestern Energy about their tax hikes is awful. They reported on their *statements* last month that their hikes are due to tax bills and that’s the mantra they repeat when you question any bill.
All of this is brought to you by deregulation. Thank YOU Mr. Racicot.
