The legacy of Northwestern Energy’s continuation as Montana’s predominate energy company along with its history in Butte are not taken lightly as the company takes steps to define its presence for the next 100 years. From Montana Power’s beginnings in 1912, housed in the ‘Electric Building’ in uptown Butte, to Northwestern Energy’s current occupation of four other ‘connected’ buildings on Broadway, the power company has been a key partner in community for nearly 100 years.
The new 98,000 sf facility houses 240+ employees in Uptown Butte. It was designed to change the culture of the working environment, attract new employees to Butte, and stand as a testament to the commitment of NWEnergy to the community of Butte.
