As the cost of solar energy has dropped precipitously in recent years, more and more Montana communities have been finding ways to install solar energy systems in their communities. If you’re interested in learning more about how your community can install more solar energy, sign up today to attend the Montana Energy Office’s 2018 Solar Energy Summit, to be held in Helena on June 28th from 1:00-4:30pm.

Chris Borton of the Sage Mountain Center will bring you up to speed on solar energy, how it works in Montana, how to work with your local electricity provider to expand your solar energy options, and answer all your solar-related questions. You’ll also hear from representatives from various Montana communities and organizations about how they successfully implemented solar in their communities and from the Energy Office about money they have available beginning this summer to fund community-scale solar projects across Montana.

Can’t make it to Helena that day. Don’t worry, you don’t have to miss out. We’ll also be streaming the meeting on Skype.

So RSVP today to guarantee yourself a seat at this informative meeting and learn about solar in Montana.

Past Events

Community Outreach Meeting - The Montana Solar Community Project held eight community outreach meetings across Montana in September and October 2017. The meetings were held in:

  • Malta
  • Great Falls
  • Miles City
  • Billings
  • Missoula
  • Butte
  • Bozeman
  • Polson

More than 130 attendees showed up for the eight meetings to hear MSCP partners discuss community-scale solar opportunities for Montana and to share their own visions for how they would like to see solar integrated into their communities in the future. Input from attendees will be incorporated into MSCP's future activities and will help guide the Solar Menu of Options report MSCP is currently preparing to help walk communities through the processes of planning, building support for, funding, and developing solar energy projects. A summary of the meetings' findings is available here and the presentation used by the Montana Energy Office is available here.
