Our service territories are located in an exceptional natural environment. At NorthWestern Energy, we have the unique opportunity to live and work in areas that are often described as majestic and peaceful. From the mountains to the prairies, people visit our communities from all over the world to experience a taste of what we enjoy every day – clean air, clean water, beautiful scenery, abundant wildlife and scores of recreational opportunities.
While we work to deliver the power our customers need, we also work to protect our native birds that sometimes interact with our electric system. As stewards of this shared environment, we must balance our obligations as an electric utility with the needs of our service areas and the safety of its unique bird habitat.
In addition to learning about how we are protecting our native osprey, you can find out about two of our most recent conservation projects: the 2011 swan diverter effort and the 2012 bird reflector install.
