KALISPELL, Montana – In Northwest Montana, and the greater Pacific Northwest, our electricity is mostly generated by water. Flathead Electric Cooperative proudly provides affordable, reliable, largely carbon-free power to 57,000+ members in the greater Flathead Valley and Libby. The Co-op invites its members to celebrate National Hydropower Day on August 24. 


“Flathead Electric Cooperative has been powered by hydro since 1937, when we first turned on the lights in 117 farmhouses across the Flathead Valley. As a leader in renewable energy for 86 years, the Co-op is thrilled to celebrate National Hydropower Day,” shared Tia Robbin, Assistant General Manager at the Co-op. 


As a Bonneville Power Administration customer, approximately 97% of the Co-op’s fuel mix comes from carbon-free resources, such as hydro, wind, and solar. Of that 97%, over 82% of the fuel mix is comprised of hydropower projects, like the Hungry Horse and Libby Dams and other dams in the Columbia River Basin.
