On April 3, 2019, the Missoula County Commissioners and the Missoula City Council adopted a joint resolution that establishes a goal of 100% clean electricity for the Missoula urban area by 2030.
Following the adoption of this goal, the city and county worked with NorthWestern Energy to develop a Memorandum of Understanding committing the three parties to work together to advance the city and county's 100% clean electricity goal. The parties to the MOU are now developing an Implementation Plan as required by the MOU.
In addition, the city and county are working with Climate Smart Missoula to develop a Roadmap to 100% Clean Electricity, which will include both projects/programs to be pursued jointly with NorthWestern Energy as well as initiatives that the city, county, and community will pursue independent of the utility.
