NaturEner, a company that operates wind farms in Montana, says it wants to start a community discussion to help improve the safety of their employees.

NaturEner is concerned about the safety of their employees after two of their wind turbines were shot in May.

The shooting happened in north Toole County. The FBI and state officials are investigating.

It is the second shooting of NaturEner wind turbines in the last five years.

NaturEner has asked for a community discussion to address future threats and current safety concerns.

They’ve offered to provide tours of the wind farm and answer any questions the community might have.

“No one should have to go to work wondering if they are at risk of getting shot. The fact that two of our technicians were in the field when someone could have fired additional shots makes me sick. I am so thankful that no one got hurt,” said Scott Rooney, NaturEner site manager.

The company also reported that the shooting caused financial impacts from repairs and lost energy.

If anyone has information regarding the incident, they are asked to call their local law enforcement agency.
