Steve Bullock said he plans to form a working group to explore “alternative ownership” and management of Colstrip Units 1, 2 and 3. Current owners Puget Sound Energy and Talen Energy face increasing pressure to shut Units 1 and 2 down. Puget also has partial ownership in Unit 3.However, state ownership of the power plants is off the table, Bullock told The Gazette.But ownership discussion is bound to change as interested parties gather to plan a way forward for Units 1 and 2, said Ann Hedges of the Montana Environmental Information Center.“They’ll all sit down at the table, but nobody wants their money thrown down the drain,” Hedges said. “They want someone else’s money thrown down the drain and that’s the problem.”Hedges said the state should be working to come up with a post-coal future for Colstrip. There’s a wind farm in the works in the same county. Solar panels might be a possibility.“There are so many things we can do and instead they’re wasting time trying to prop up a dying economic business model,” Hedges said.Full article: Montana Gov.
