SB 197 by Senator Janet Ellis (D-Helena) would make it easier for developers to build small-scale community renewable energy projects and sell the electricity to NorthWestern Energy. The bill eliminates the requirement that developers of these small projects must live in Montana, something NorthWestern has used to avoid purchasing electricity from these community-based projects. 

Position: Support

Status:  The bill was heard in the Senate Energy and Telecommunications Committee on Tuesday, Feb. 16. Awaiting committee action.
