15-32-401. Purpose and statement of policy. The purpose of this part is to encourage the development of the alternative energy industry in Montana without adversely affecting tax revenue received from existing economic activity in the state. Because of the alternative energy potential within the state, it is desirable to encourage alternative energy generation for the purpose of attracting alternative energy manufacturing industries to the state. It is also desirable for new or expanded industry to secure alternatively generated electricity on a direct contract sales basis without adversely affecting rates charged to other electricity users. Sound fiscal policy requires that encouragement be given to an alternative energy industry without subtracting from existing sources of revenue to the state.
