substation

NorthWestern Energy hasn’t made a decision about the location and type of substation it will build, but the company sees a lot of upside in a low-profile traditional substation, pictured here in a rendering of the Midway site.

Substation evaluation

Looking to flip the breaker on the public’s perception of plans for a new mid-mountain substation, NorthWestern Energy invited Big Sky residents to the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center on April 11 for a presentation by company representatives, an engineer working on the project and a professional facilitator from Montana State University.

New possibilities

On March 9, NorthWestern Energy sent a letter to 3,650 Big Sky ratepayers inviting them to a public forum on April 11. At the meeting, NorthWestern Energy will unveil new renderings illustrating options for a mid-mountain substation at one of two proposed sites just off of Lone Mountain Trail.
