Montana sawmills are working with Montana’s power company to create biomass fuel. Eight sawmills are partnering with NorthWestern Energy and the Montana Community Development Corporation. The goal is to create wood-fueled power across the state. It’s partially funded by a $125,000 grant from the State. The combined effort hopes to help address the pine beetle problem and diversify the State’s electric supply.
