PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that on August 14, 2020, NorthWestern requested the Public Service Commission ("Commission") increase its BPA Residential Exchange Program Credit ("BPA Credit"). In July 2019, BPA notified NorthWestern that the BPA Credit amount would increase from $6,015,408 to $6,133,658 for fiscal years 2020 and 2021. NorthWestern's proposed BPA Credit rate reflects the estimated net balance of $15,636 for the prior period ending September 2020, a forecasted benefit of $6,133,658 for the next fiscal year, and reduced taxes of $34,805 for a total balance of $6,184,099 to be credited to customers. This request would increase the BPA Credit rates per kilowatt-hour for the following customer classes: Rate Classes Current Proposed Difference Residential $(0.002225) $(0.002256) ($0.000031) Residential Employee $(0.001335) $(0.001354) ($0.000019) General Service Secondary $(0.002225) $(0.002256) ($0.000031) Irrigation $(0.002225) $(0.002256) ($0.000031) Lighting $(0.002225) $(0.002256) ($0.000031) The total balance of $6,184,099 credited to customers is an increase from the total credit balance of $6,015,112 in the previous period ending September 1, 2019 (as filed in Docket No. 2019.08.51).
