NorthWestern Energy

June 2003 - NorthWestern Energy, which provides default service to 288,000 electricity customers in Montana, announced a new green power option for its residential and business customers. Under the E+ Green program, customers can sign up to purchase an unlimited number of 100-kWh blocks of renewable energy each month for $2 per block, or a premium of 2¢/kWh. Commercial and industrial customers that meet minimum purchase requirements can become E+ Green Partners, which makes them eligible for inclusion in program advertisements and entitles them to use the E+ Green program logo. The program will be supplied by the non-profit Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) using Green-e certified renewable energy certificates generated from wind and solar facilities located in the Pacific Northwest. BEF will also use program revenues to encourage new Montana-based renewable energy projects.
