The Hardin Generating Station is located in southern Montana, on the northern outskirts of Hardin.

It is owned by Rocky Mountain Power which is a subsidiary of Centennial Power, which in turn is a subsidiary of Bicent Power Company.[1] Rocky Mountain Power had the rights rights to construct the plant and was taken over by Centennial Power in March 2002.[2]

The plant was built and is being operated by Colorado Energy Management, which is also a subsidiary of Centennial Power. (Both Centennial Power and Colorado Energy Management were part of the MDU Resources Group until they were bought by Bicent in July 2007.)[3]

Montana Environmental Information Center appealed the air permit and in May 2005 settled with the company for installation of mercury controls.[4]
