NorthWestern Energy has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for up to 45 MW of renewable energy generation that will qualify under Montana's community renewable resource statutory requirement.

Under current statutory requirements, NorthWestern Energy anticipates an additional need for community renewable energy projects starting in 2013.
