The Unknown Energy Battleground: Understanding the Importance of the Montana Public Service Commission The Montana Public Service Commission (PSC) is one of the most important influencers of Montana’s energy future. The PSC’s oversight includes rates for net metering customers (e.g. rooftop solar and small wind), utility purchases of energy from wind farms and large solar arrays, and more. Over the past several years, the PSC has become a battleground for renewable energy development in Montana, and these discussions continue to intensify. The Wheeler Center partnered with the Montana Renewable Energy Association (MREA) to host an even in Bozeman at Montana State University to educate the public about the Montana's Public Service Commission. Join the Montana Renewable Energy Association and our partners for a short presentation that explains what the Public Service Commission is, how it operates, and how citizens can make their voice heard. Following the presentation, a panel of experts and advocates will discuss current issues the PSC is overseeing, including large-scale wind and solar development as well as the upcoming electric rate case that may drastically change the landscape for net metering customers.
