March equaled planning for a COVID-19 response for many organizations. NorthWestern Energy was no exception.
Late in 2016, NorthWestern Energy announced the need to construct a new, mid-mountain substation in the Big Sky community, which will enhance the reliability of existing electric service in the area and support the growth of the community.
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.
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.
