HELENA – Today, the Montana Environmental Information Center and Sierra Club petitioned the Montana Public Service Commission (PSC) to hold a public hearing on the potential sale of PPL Montana’s electricity generation assets to determine how the PSC could best protect Montanans if a sale occurs. Recent reports have indicated PPL Montana is attempting to sell its Montana electricity generating assets. As the electricity deregulation debacle in Montana has shown, a sale of electricity generation assets could significantly impact Montana utility customers. If NorthWestern Energy is considering a purchase of PPL Montana’s generation resources, customers could be especially vulnerable to higher energy bills.
