Innovating Our Energy Future
NorthWestern Energy’s policy is to provide cost-effective, reliable and stably priced energy while being good stewards of natural resources and complying with environmental regulations.
NorthWestern Energy dedicates time and resources toward providing sustainable energy options for our customers. Wind generation, hydro generation, and solar generations are among the main project areas for sustainable energy.
The backbone of NorthWestern’s generation is its fleet of 10 hydroelectric generation stations and one storage reservoir. Wind generation continues to become a larger part of NorthWestern’s electric supply portfolio. We are building solar pilot projects that are designed to test various types of solar-related technology to further our knowledge of how this generation can be integrated into our electricity portfolio. We have committed to funding four solar projects that combined will help us evaluate the potential for solar to help meet our needs for reliable, affordable clean energy that benefits all customers.
