NWE Seeks Applications for Energy-Saving Projects

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

NorthWestern Energy is asking for project proposals. Montana law requires the company to fund projects that offset carbon generated at a station near Anaconda.

"Montana law requires us to offset the new carbon generated by the (Dave Gates Generating Station) plant by funding projects that reduce carbon in the atmosphere," said John Hines, Vice President - Energy Supply. "We worked through the details of the carbon offset plan with the Montana Public Service Commission to fund eligible projects that comply with the spirit and intent of the law."

NorthWestern will provide a total of $146,000 for projects that:
a. Increase energy efficiency in buildings (e.g., heating, cooling or lighting);
b. Retrofit buildings to improve energy efficiency;
c. Increase efficiency of energy used in manufacturing;
d. Reduce greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing processes;
e. Combust or contain methane gases from landfills or other industrial wastes; or
f. Meet the criteria for utility energy loss reduction projects.


Projects must be completed in 2014.  Applications are due February 28.

For an application of more information visit NorthWestern Energy's Website.
