NorthWestern Energy

NorthWestern Energy is proud to have a rich heritage of providing utility services that contribute to the growth and economic prosperity in our communities. The mission of our Economic Development team is to help retain existing jobs, promote business expansion, and recruit new businesses in the communities we serve.

This will be accomplished through the support of local and statewide economic development entities and initiatives and partnering with community, state and national leaders in the region we serve.

Our corporate economic development team members are actively involved in local, state, regional and national level economic development. These team members assist site selection consultants, economic development agencies, government agencies, existing businesses, and potential new businesses. They can assist with information on:

  • Utility rates
  • Availability of utility distribution and transmission services
  • Utility operations — natural gas and/or electricity
  • Power reliability
  • Deregulation (Montana)
  • Energy efficiency programs
  • Long-range community planning

Our local community-based economic development team members serve as essential grassroots contacts for retail and small commercial/industrial opportunities. They serve as resources for expertise in the areas of energy management and utility operations.
