Talen Montana, LLC and the five other owners of the Colstrip Steam Electric Station (Puget Sound Energy, Avista Corporation, Portland General Electric Company, NorthWestern Corporation and PacifiCorp) have reached a proposed settlement in a lawsuit filed in 2013 by Sierra Club and the Montana Environmental Information Center under the Clean Air Act. The proposed consent decree, if approved by the United States District Court for the District of Montana, would resolve the litigation against all four Colstrip units and provide liability releases to the owners of all four units. The core elements of the proposed settlement include a commitment to cease operations of Units 1 and 2 on or before July 1, 2022, and liability releases for the owners of all four units, without requiring monetary payments to the plaintiffs. Apart from outright dismissal of all claims against Units 3 and 4, those units are not affected by the proposed settlement. Aside from the July 1, 2022 deadline in the proposed settlement, there is no formal plan or timeline currently in place for retiring Units 1 and 2.
