Intermountain Gas Company files decrease in prices as part of PGA filing

BOISE, ID – August 14, 2023 – Intermountain Gas Company filed its annual purchased gas cost adjustment (PGA) application with the Idaho Public Utilities Commission to decrease its prices by an average of 20.6% or approximately $86.9 million. The PGA application is filed each year to ensure the costs Intermountain incurs on behalf of its customers are reflected in its sales prices. If approved, the decrease would be effective Oct. 1, 2023.

The primary reason for the proposed PGA decrease is a significant decrease in estimated gas commodity costs for the upcoming year when compared to Intermountain’s recently approved interim PGA. If approved, a typical residential customer would see a monthly decrease of $11.96, or 19.3% based on average weather and usage. Commercial customers, on average, would see a decrease of $72.88, or 24.4%, per month. The cost of natural gas is a straight passthrough to customers; Intermountain does not earn a profit on the cost of natural gas.
