Policy SummaryOn November 9, 2007, Governor Brian Schweitzer received the final Climate Change Action Plan Report, completed by The Climate Change Advisory Committee.

The Montana Climate Change Action Plan includes policy recommendation ES-4, Incentives and Barrier Removal for Combined Heat and Power and Clean Distributed Generation, which focuses on steps that the state could take to increase incentives for CHP and decrease barriers that discourage CHP development. These steps include increasing incentives that could be funded through improving or expanding the state's Alternative Energy Revolving Loan Program, and creating standardized interconnection and net metering rules for CHP. In the Residential, Commercial, Institutional, and Industrial section of the report, RCII-7, Support for Implementation of Clean Combined Heat and Power, recommends that implementation of CHP by residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial energy consumers should be encouraged through a combination of regulatory changes and incentive programs in conjunction with policy ES-4.
