YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - The state Public Utilities Commission will hold a public hearing in Yankton next week to take input about a proposed rate increase by NorthWestern Energy.

The PUC says it will hear comments at the Thursday meeting on the increase that NorthWestern applied for in December.

The company says the proposed increase for a typical residential customer would be about $16.75 per month. The proposed rates could affect about 62,000 customers in NorthWestern’s South Dakota service area.

The increase would overall increase rates by about 26.5 million annually, or about 20 percent, for the company.

The public hearing will begin at 7 p.m. at the Best Western Kelly Inn in Yankton.
