NorthWestern Energy issues RfP for 45-MW of renewables
Jun 16, 2014 - US utility NorthWestern Corp (NYSE:NWE), doing business as NorthWestern Energy, has launched a request for proposals (RfP) for as many as 45 MW of community-owned renewable energy capacity in Montana.
In a statement on Friday, the utility said it is seeking to buy power from renewable energy plants with capacities of less than 25 MW, which are majority owned by in-state residents or entities. Further details were not provided.
NorthWestern Energy noted that it has enough power resources to meet demand and requirements under the state’s renewable portfolio standard in 2015. The law requires all power utilities and electricity suppliers in Montana to source 15% of their power from renewables by 2015.
