Colstrip Generating Plant
NorthWestern Energy will acquire Avista’s 222-megawatt ownership of Colstrip Units 3 & 4 in 2026.
This chart shows in near real time where your energy is coming from, with the red line showing the forecast of how much electricity we need to generate to meet demand.
When generation doesn't meet demand (when there is a gap between the colored bars and the red line), we buy additional electricity from the open market. When generation exceeds demand (the colored bars go above the red line), we can sell the extra energy on the market.
