For more than 80 years, NorthWestern has provided reliable, competitively priced electricity and natural gas service.

Founded in 1923 as NorthWestern Public Service, the incorporation of the company brought together two utility properties in Nebraska and two in South Dakota. Backing the new company were members of the Albert Emanuel Company of New York City, an early utility holding company.

Along with its Midwest holdings, the Emanuel Company owned operating utilities in Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania. The formation of NorthWestern Public Service was the Emanuel family's first major acquisition outside of the lower Midwest and the Mid-Atlantic States; hence the name of "NorthWestern" Public Service to designate the new consolidated utility.
