Northwestern Energy Enters Agreement
NorthWestern Energy has entered into an agreement with Turnbull Hydro, LLC to purchase 13 megawatts of clean, renewable energy from a new generating facility located on an existing irrigation canal near Fairfield, Montana.
The agreement is the culmination of a competitive Request for Proposal effort to identify cost effective electric energy supply agreements that meet Montana’s Renewable Portfolio Standard requirements.
In addition to a competitive price, under the 20-year power purchase agreement the company will receive all of the renewable energy credits associated with this generation project.
This hydro project will start generating electricity in 2011 when the irrigation canal begins receiving water, and will operate throughout the irrigation season.
