At Montana-Dakota Utilities we provide customers with access to incentive plans and conservation tips for more efficient energy use, as well as environmental information.

We take pride at Montana-Dakota in our efforts to be good stewards of the land and its resources. We live and work in the communities we serve and taking care of the environment is important to us. Montana-Dakota operates efficiently to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Our environmental goals are:

  • To minimize waste and maximize resources;

Montana-Dakota strives to minimize land disturbances while maximizing resource extraction, engage in wildlife protection practices, promote emission reduction and fuel conservation, work with wildlife regulatory agencies, develop water enhancement practices, ensure water quality protection, control and prevent the spread of noxious weeds, promote noise reduction, and implement programs to develop and enhance public spaces in the communities we serve. To see how Montana-Dakota achieves these goals, check out the company’s Sustainability Report.

Electric Energy Efficiency Potential Study Request For Proposals (RFP)

Montana-Dakota Utilities Co., a Subsidiary of MDU Resources Group, Inc. (Montana-Dakota) is seeking assistance to identify the remaining, achievable, cost-effective electric energy efficiency potential in Montana-Dakota’s retail electric service territory (in the states of Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming).  Montana-Dakota also seeks to quantify the amount of electric energy usage savings achievable through identified energy efficiency programs. The evaluation will compare the costs and savings of energy-efficiency measures relative to standard equipment and practices to determine the amount electric energy efficiency is technically feasible, economically feasible, and achievable in each state jurisdiction in Montana-Dakota’s electric service territory for a range of avoided costs.

Proposals are due by 5:00 PM CDT on July 1, 2022.
