Welcome to the Glean, MinnPost's twice-daily roundup of Minnesota news. This from Stribber Mike Hughlett, 'Minnesota utility regulators Thursday faulted the state's gas providers for their response to a February 2021 storm, prohibiting them from passing down nearly $60 million in costs to consumers. The decision still means about $600 million of wholesale gas costs can be passed onto consumers, who already have started to pay those amounts through a special surcharge. The decision by the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to reject about 9% of the costs fell far short of a recommendation by the Minnesota Department of Commerce, which represents ratepayers, and utility watchdog groups.
