Montana Loves Solar Power
Montana has some great incentives for it’s residents with its main tax credit being the Residential Alternative Energy System Tax Credit. This credit can be worth up to $1,000 off of the cost of your solar system depending on how many taxpayers live in the home. As we went over earlier, Montana has a law that could potentially save you from increased property taxes when you install a solar energy system. This law could save you hundreds of dollars if you qualify. The state’s net metering program offers a great incentive for homeowners, since it allows them to roll over any surplus of energy from one month to the next. This can also be done annually but is less common. Northwestern Energy is also currently offering a rebate, so make sure to check with them to see if you qualify because it could save you thousands of dollars.

The installation process for those living in Montana is the same as it would be in any other state. Many homeowners in Montana choose to stay connected to the grid when they install their solar systems so that they can benefit from the net metering program available. We recommend having your system installed in the winter or spring, because it ensures that your system will be up and ready to go by the time summer comes around.T he installation process usually takes less than a day to complete but may take longer depending on the size of your system.
