Proposed battery facility in Butte, Montana under consideration


The Butte-Silver Bow Zoning Board is expected to decide Thursday whether a five-acre utility-scale battery energy storage facility can be located next to a NorthWestern Energy substation in an otherwise open tract of 200 acres south of town.

County officials have never dealt with a battery grid project and there has been a major development since the board held a public hearing on it last month.
