NorthWestern Energy Offers Incentives 
for Renewable Energy Projects

NorthWestern Energy's electric customers in Montana who are interested in generating their electricity from the sun and wind or who want to use the sun to heat their domestic water may be eligible to participate in demonstration projects in 2003 to turn their dreams into reality.

The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is administering two residential solar energy demonstration programs, a wind energy demonstration project and solar projects intended for schools and fire stations.

All the projects are funded by NorthWestern Energy's Universal Systems Benefits (USB) charge paid by the company's electric customers.

Look below for company news releases announcing the residential and school projects, plus applications and accompanying documents for each project, and a list of Montana renewable energy dealers. Applications and accompanying documents can be downloaded in pdf format.
