6:30 p.m. Public engagement meeting: NorthWestern Energy mid-mountain power station discussion at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center
NorthWestern Energy began a public engagement process last summer in order to gather the community’s concerns and perceptions about potential sites for a new mid-mountain electrical substation. It’s needed to enhance the reliability of current electrical service and to meet growing demand. This latest meeting is an update on the results of the analysis of the two proposed sites, technologies and the anticipated timeline for selecting a site and proceeding with the regulatory approval process.
