Montana-Dakota Utilities customer bill gets new look

Montana-Dakota Utilities customers will see a new bill format in the mail beginning in February. It’s the first major bill change for the utility company in more than 30 years.

Montana-Dakota has upgraded its customer information and billing system to improve customer service, and as a result created a new look for the customer bill, including more detailed information on their energy usage and charges. The new bill format will not affect a customer’s bill due date and will not affect easy pay or balanced billing for customers enrolled in those programs.

“The new bill format offers a clean look and will provide customers with additional information on their monthly bill,” Frank Morehouse, president and CEO of Montana-Dakota Utilities, said. “What’s even more exciting is that our new customer information and billing system will allow us to develop online self-service options.”

Within the next few months, customers will be able to access their account information online 24/7 with the flexibility to review account information, usage history and billing statement analysis of detailed monthly charges. Customers will also be able to schedule a payment online, view past bills and submit change of address information. More information will be released when the self-service site is launched.

The new bill format can be viewed at www.montanadakota.com.
