Solar power FAQs

  • The national average cost to install a residential solar system is $31,558. Your home size, the condition of your roof, the panel type, and the solar company can all impact the total cost of your installation. However, federal and state incentives can help you offset your initial investment and make it easier to go solar.

  • Solar in Montana can be a good investment. If your home is in a location with direct exposure to sunlight, you may have considerable savings in energy costs. Depending on your monthly electric bill and how much energy you generate, you may even be able to recoup your investment costs in a few years.

  • Your home’s specific needs and energy consumption play a role in determining how much you will save by investing in solar energy. Larger systems may cost more upfront. However, if your energy bills are high, you could save a lot each month by generating your power. With net metering, you may even be able to sell any excess energy generated back to the power grid.

  • SaveOnEnergy’s independent energy marketplace is a great place to explore various solar installers in Montana and determine which one is right for you. Prior to signing a contract with a company, research customer satisfaction ratings and see the installer licenses and professional certifications.

  • Nationwide efforts for positive environmental impacts are at an all-time high, and solar energy is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. As a renewable energy source, solar energy does not emit harmful pollutants into the atmosphere like burning fossil fuels. Solar panels also rarely impact the local environment since they get installed on existing buildings.
