Power Play (No. 311)

First Aired Thursday, June 08, 2006

There's a lot going on with Montana's energy picture. An Australian company would like to buy NorthWestern Energy and the PSC wants to undo deregulation in our state. In addition PSC Commissioner Bob Raney is threatening to play the "eminent domain" card to regain control of hydro electric generating plants currently owned by PPL Montana. Montana Standard editor Gerry O'Brien weighs in on the NWE proposed sale in our Opinion segment. And, we go to Judith Gap for a look at the emerging popularity of wind power as an alternative source of energy.
