Rallying for renewables: Measure aims to expand solar opportunities

February 24, 2017View for printing

More than 150 renewable energy supporters rallied at the state Capitol Thursday, voicing support for legislation expanding opportunities for new solar projects they say will bring more jobs and keep Montana from falling behind in a burgeoning industry.

House Bill 504 sponsor Rep. Bryce Bennett, D-Missoula, coined the bill the "Solar Jobs and Energy Freedom Act," but it is officially titled the "Neighborhood Net Metering Act." The House Energy, Technology and Federal Relations Committee heard testimony on the bill on Wednesday, and is expected to take action on it Friday.
