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 may be eligible to participate in demonstration projects in 2004 to turn their dreams into reality.

The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is administering the 2004 Residential Solar Electric Demonstration Project, the 2004 Fire Station Solar Electric Demonstration Project, and Sun4Communities, a new project that expands on the previous Sun4Schools project by adding courthouses, city halls, and public libraries to the list of eligible buildings.  Also new for 2004 is the Solar Meals for Seniors Demonstration Project, which will provide both solar electric systems and building energy audits to facilities that prepare and/or serve meals to seniors.

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 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.
