Intermountain Gas files for demand side management program funding mechanism
BOISE, ID – July 27, 2017 – Intermountain Gas filed an application with the Idaho Public Utilities Commission for approval to implement a mechanism whereby the company can recover costs incurred for a residential demand side management (DSM) program. DSM is an energy industry term for reducing the amount of energy purchased on behalf of the customer through activities or programs that promote energy efficiency or conservation.
If approved and implemented the change to residential customer rates would be in affect
October 1, 2017.
The proposed mechanism would allow the company to implement a per therm increase to residential customers of 0.58 percent. This change would increase the average residential customer’s monthly bill approximately 22 cents per month. If approved, the increase to the company’s revenues would be $777,000 with no change to the company’s earnings.
