2023 Budget & Rates

Proposed 2023 Budget and Rates

Moorhead Public Service (MPS) is locally governed by a six-member board of MPS customers known as the Moorhead Public Service Commission (Commission). Each fall, the Commission has the responsibility of establishing the utility’s rates and budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Preliminary estimates indicate that rate increases for MPS customers in 2023 may be between 0 and 4 percent for electric rates and between 2 and 5 percent for water rates.

The Moorhead Public Service Commission will hold a public hearing to consider changes in electric and water rates in Moorhead. The public hearing will be held on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, at 5:30 PM, in the Auditorium at the Hjemkomst Center, 202 First Avenue North, Moorhead, Minnesota.

For thirty (30) days subsequent to the closing of the rate hearing and prior to the adoption of a rate change, written testimony shall be received and considered by the Commission. To be considered by the Commission, written comments should be postmarked no later than Saturday, November 18, 2022, and mailed to: Moorhead Public Service Commission, P.O. Box 779, Moorhead, MN 56561-0779.

A formal decision regarding MPS’ 2023 rates will be determined at the Commission’s meeting on or about December 20, 2022.
