Montana has an opportunity to manage the future of part of Colstrip
The Montana Legislature is considering Senate Bill 278, which would give Montana an opportunity to manage the future of a part of the Colstrip coal-fired power plant.
The energy landscape is transitioning and Colstrip’s future, along with the community and employees, needs to be addressed. Additionally, the Colstrip Transmission System is a critical asset for Montana and must be preserved. NorthWestern Energy is a logical partner to help lead a Colstrip transition. Our customers depend on this vital source of always-available electricity when, like this winter, demand is high. However before taking on this role, we must be sure Montana is aligned with this direction and that our customers’ and shareholders’ interests are addressed.
