HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) - Montana’s Northwestern Energy customers may pay a little less for electricity in July.

The Ravalli Republic reports (https://bit.ly/1Q3c5ks) the utility company’s annual supply cost report filed with the Montana Public Service Commission predicts rates for the average residential customer could decrease by $3.10 per month.

NorthWestern Energy spokesman Butch Larcombe says lower bills are being influenced by the recent low market price of electricity and savings form the company’s increased ownership of its power-producing facilities.

The utility is also paying less for certain types of power contributed to the grid, savings that customers are going to benefit from.

Northwestern Energy’s service territory covers about 73 percent of the land area in Montana.
