Gov. Brian Schweitzer, D-Mont., recently signed House Bill (H.B.) 3, which provides tax incentives for the future development and transmission of renewable energy.

"This [bill] will spur economic growth all over Montana, create good paying jobs and help our nation reduce its dependence on foreign sources of energy," Schweitzer says.

The incentives included in H.B.3 support the development of new transmission lines, carbon dioxide sequestration pipelines, power plants, solar and wind projects, the governor's office says.
