This statute establishes the state of Montana's support for the development and implementation of renewable energy technologies as well as environmentally-friendly modifications to existing technologies. The state aims to develop a reliable mix of energy sources, promote the development of new technologies and the continued exploration for oil, gas, and coal reserves, build new transmission lines and increase the capacity of existing lines, promote large-scale utility wind generation and small-scale distributed generation, facilitate the incorporation of new energy sources into the electric grid, and develop best management practices for energy resources. The Montana Energy and Telecommunications Interim Committee, of the Montana State Legislature, is responsible for reviewing this policy and proposing revisions.
