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.
The U.S. Department of Energy compiles maps of biomass, hydropower, solar photovoltaic, concentrating solar and wind energy potential in Montana.
The Montana Department of Commerce Energy Promotion and Development Division highlights renewable energy and fossil fuel development opportunities in Montana.
This Montana Department of Environmental Quality site houses information about wind data, statewide energy statistics, details utility scale renewable energy tax credits in Montana and a variety of other subjects.
