HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The Montana Public Service Commission has rejected Montana-Dakota Utilities’ request for a $10.9 million electricity rate hike.

The PSC voted Tuesday against the request, which is part of a larger $11.8 million increase sought by the utility. That would be a 21.1 percent rate increase.

Commissioner Travis Kavulla said in a statement the regulatory panel and MDU are far apart in the amount rates should be increased.

A hearing on the rate case will be held in February in Glendive, with a final decision expected in March.

MDU provides power to about 26,000 homes and businesses in eastern Montana.
