MidAmerican Energy is asking state regulators in South Dakota to approve a natural gas rate increase to support the investment of more than $100 million in its natural gas distribution system in the state. If approved, the request filed on May 18, 2022 with the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission would be the first rate increase since the company’s last request in 2014. The proposed adjustment addresses the approximately $108 million in capital investment and operating expenses incurred to maintain and upgrade natural gas infrastructure used to serve customers since the last rate increase.
