BUTTE, Mont., June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NorthWestern Corporation d/b/a
NorthWestern Energy (NYSE:NWE) has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP)
seeking up to 45 megawatts of community-owned renewable generation.

The company is required to purchase energy from qualified community renewable
energy projects that meet the legal definition as a qualified renewable
energy resource that has a total generating capacity under 25 megawatts with a
majority ownership stake by in-state residents or entities. 

While NorthWestern Energy has sufficient energy resources to generally meet
customer needs and the Renewable Portfolio Standard that takes effect in 2015,
it must comply with its legal requirements to enter into contracts to purchase
the output from qualified community-owned projects. Communities, businesses
and individuals in Montana are strongly encouraged to learn more about these
projects as a way of building economic diversity that benefits both
locally-owned projects and NorthWestern's customers.

All questions regarding the RFP process should also be directed to Lands
Energy Consulting.
