Montana wind power: Poised to make the jump to bigger markets?

July 12, 2018View for printing

When it comes to wind-power production, Montana is a relatively small player in the region - but that could be about to change.

About 2,700 megawatts of new wind projects are on the drawing board in central and south-central Montana, with most of them aiming to sell their product into large, urban markets outside the state.

These projects won't be completed for several years, and only then if they're able to secure contracts to sell the power and arrange space on transmission lines to deliver it.

But with Pacific Northwest utilities on the hunt for new, cleaner power sources and space possibly opening up on interstate transmission lines, wind-power advocates and developers in Montana are sounding optimistic.
