Utility Scale Generation

Montana's legacy hydroelectric dams and new wind farms form the foundation of the state's renewable energy generating mix. With ample natural resources, Montana is well-suited for utility scale renewable energy projects that can meet both in-state and export market demands. The map below highlights the utility-scale renewable energy projects active in the state.
