Thanks to all those who came out for the public workshops. We were thrilled to see the interest from the community! We’re posting the presentation material here, in case you missed the workshops, wanted to share it with friends, or just wanted a copy.
It’s clear folks in the Missoula area are SOLAR interested. We had an amazing turnout at our first workshop – almost 100 people in the room.
Even if you came to the workshop and signed in, please REGISTER here so we know we have you on the list for a potential site assessment. Mention you attended the 1st workshop in the space provided (second to last question).
Next workshop is Dec 1 at 7:15, Missoula Public Library large meeting room.
• For 3kW to <4.5kW systems: $3.10/Watt (pre-incentives) for standard panels with string inverters; add $.20/Watt for systems with micro inverters or power optimizers (i.e. $3.30/watt for systems with micro inverters or power optimizers);
• For 4.5kW to 10kW systems: $2.85/Watt (pre-incentives) for standard panels with string inverters; add $.20/Watt for systems with micro inverters or power optimizers (i.e. $3.05/watt for systems with micro inverters or power optimizers);
• Add $.75/Watt for ground/pole mount (with 5kW minimum install size).
We have two community workshops scheduled. These workshops are designed to introduce Missoula homeowners to this program, giving you the information you need to consider adding solar to your rooftop. Our job is to reduce the complexity and cost. Your job is to just come to one of these events and learn!
