Solar Montana provides free estimates in the Helena area and a reasonable rate for site analysis out of town. Each estimate receives both a detailed shade analysis report and an estimate highlighting the Return on Investment.
There are two basic types of solar installations: Grid-tie and off-grid.
For those concerned with power outages we recommend grid-tied systems with battery back-up as standard solar systems do not come with batteries.
Solar modules contain no moving parts and include power production warranties up to 25 years. There are many different mounting options available, including roof mount, ground mount, and pole mount.
Helena, Montana, has excellent solar irradiance; we receive about 4.7 hours of peak sunlight on average. “Peak sunlight” means the amount of time when the sun’s rays are producing about a 1,000 watts per square meter. Peak sunlight hours are typically used to calculate solar module production.
Solar Montana will conduct a thorough site analysis to ensure that the proposed installation is optimal for solar production. Through the use of a solar shade obstruction tools, we can accurately tell you if any obstructions will cause shading at any time of the year.
When grid power is out of reach and you still want the modern convenience of electricity, an off grid solar system can provide a solution. We design and install systems intended to service small remote cabins to full time residences. Each off-grid application has unique design requirements based on the user, location, and power loads. Our experience with the right system design and product selection will help you make all the right decisions
