lightbulbWhat are the highest paying jobs at NorthWestern Corporation?

NorthWestern Corporation owns NorthWestern Energy, a utility company that serves South Dakota, Nebraska, and Montana that is based in Sioux Falls. As of 2019, the company serves approximately 718,000 customers. The company's corporate headquarters are located in Sioux Falls while the headquarters for the South Dakota operations are in Huron, South Dakota.

The Montana operations were acquired around 2000 after that state passed legislation allowing the electric utility industry to be 'unbundled'. Out of state investors then immediately acquired the generation assets of Montana Power, leaving that part of the territory vulnerable to high "spot" prices on the energy market. In 2014, NorthWestern purchased the dams that were originally part of Montana Power for $900 Million from PPL Corporation.

In March, 2003, a class action was filed against Northwestern Corp, claiming that defendants artificially inflated the stock price through material omissions and materially false and misleading statements. A $41 million settlement fund was established in 2005. On April 1, 2003, as a result of the ongoing evaluation and review of certain accounting entries, NorthWestern said it expects to restate prior unaudited quarterly results for the first three quarters of 2002.

In March 2009, NorthWestern Energy was involved with a gas explosion in Bozeman, Montana. The explosion destroyed several businesses and killed one person. By November, the company was sued by numerous owners of the destroyed businesses.
