Solar Montana: Experience Matters
Installing solar is a long term investment. You want a contractor who is going to be around to answer questions, and service the product they install if necessary. We have been installing solar since 2005, the longest in the Helena area . Solar Montana is here for the long haul with a proven track record of success. We’ve seen a lot of changes in this fast growing industry since then, and we make a point to stay up to date on the best available technology for our customers.
Investing in solar is a lot about comparing the installation costs with expected savings. Our state of the art modelling tools help us design a solar array specific to your site and energy needs. Lifetime system performance monitoring lets you see what you solar array is doing once it’s installed
