NorthWestern Energy | northwesternenergy.com
NorthWestern Energy has provided reliable and affordable energy to customers in Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska for more than 100 years. Our company got its start in small communities, providing essential service that allowed them to grow and prosper. Today, we are proud to serve more than 718,300 residential and business customers with electricity and natural gas.
With roots in the Montana Power Co. and South Dakota based Northwestern Pacific Public Service Co., NorthWestern Energy took its current form in 2002 when the company bought the Montana Power electric and natural gas transmission and distribution system and became a partial owner of Colstrip Unit 4. Today the company is a growing, financially sound, investor-owned energy company. Shares in NorthWestern Energy are traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol NWE.
More than 60 percent of the electricity NorthWestern Energy provides to our Montana customers comes from renewable water, wind and solar generation. Additional contracts with sizable wind projects will add to the percentage in the next few years. We also have a small amount of solar generation that serves customers. And, there are cost-effective opportunities to increase the power produced from our existing hydro system, which will help meet our customers' needs.
