The Cascade County Zoning Board of Adjustments approved two $5 million solar farms on the edges of Great Falls on Wednesday, August 16, 2016.


Another Great Falls Tribune article from last May states:

"NorthWestern Energy, the largest public utility in Montana, has signed five 25-year power purchase contracts with Cypress Creek Renewables of Santa Monica, Calif., for 14 megawatts of solar power from separate farms outside of Missoula, Helena, Townsend, Hardin and Reedpoint.

“We’re just getting a ton of these proposals,” said Butch Larcombe, a spokesman for NorthWestern Energy.

Statewide, two out-of-state developers alone are proposing 43 solar projects, each 3 megawatts, NorthWestern says."
