Tester, Daines Grill Officials Over Whitefish Energy Contract

Both of Montana’s senators questioned federal oversight of a multi-million dollar contract between Montana-based Whitefish Energy and the Puerto Rican electric utility during a Senate committee hearing today.

Senators Jon Tester and Steve Daines grilled administrators overseeing power restoration efforts in Puerto Rico during the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

During the hearing on this year’s hurricane season, Senator Tester, a Democrat, said he didn’t understand how the Puerto Rican utility, also called PREPA, chose Whitefish Energy.
