POWER FOR JOBS WHO'S TO PROVIDE IT?
Without sufficient power, jobs vanish. That's one of the reasons why we're building generating capacity. Unless plants are on the line in time, the Northwest, including Montana, will be short of power. Future Montanans, like the 144,000 turning age 21 in this decade, will need power.
We intend to meet our legal obligation to supply them and you.
