BUTTE, Mont. – The mayor of Helena stopped in Butte Thursday morning to deliver a letter at NorthWestern Energy’s headquarters asking the utility to invest more in renewable energy.
Mayor Wilmot Collins arrived at NorthWestern Energy headquarters with two environmental activists to deliver a letter to the company’s president, Robert Rowe.
Collins claims the Colstrip’s plant’s future is uncertain and the utility should focus on renewable energy sources.
NorthWestern Energy responded by calling this a political stunt and said the mayor was making inflammatory statements to make the company look bad.
