Solar energy businesses win lawsuit against Montana regulator, NorthWestern Energy

A Montana judge has sided with the solar developers in a lawsuit faulting NorthWestern Energy and the Public Service Commission for thwarting small renewable energy projects.

District Judge James Manley faulted the PSC for deliberately creating contract and pricing terms that made solar energy projects uneconomical. State regulators now have 20 days to come up with a fair pricing scheme and to restore solar energy contracts to 25 years.
