Each person or other organization engaged in the generation, manufacture, or production of electricity and electrical energy in the state of Montana, either through waterpower or by any other means, is required to pay a quarterly license tax of $.0002 per kilowatt hour on all electricity and electrical energy generated, manufactured, or produced, as measured at the place of production.

There is no production incentive; however, an interest differential credit is allowed to utility providers for low-interest loans provided to customers for energy efficiency improvements.
