Flathead Electric Cooperative is creating another community solar project

KALISPELL – The Flathead Electric Cooperative (FEC) is creating its third community solar project to help produce electricity for its members.

The third solar project is a little different from the first two because it is a grant-supported program.

This means that instead of purchasing the solar panel itself, customers will be purchasing the generation of the panel – not the panel itself.

Members who purchase panels can expect a $40 to $70 reduction in their energy bill annually.

While solar energy is variable – especially here in Montana – the FEC wants to remind customers that all energy generation is positive generation.

“You know here in Flathead the electric fuel mix is ​​97% carbon neutral. So, it’s not like buying a solar panel here makes any real impact on your carbon footprint if that’s your concern, and that’s your concern with solar panels.” But many Members are interested in the technology itself, and other members are curious about how we can help return power to the grid during times when the grid is stressed.” – Courtney Stone, Flathead Electric Cooperative Communications and Marketing Supervisor.

The solar panels are almost sold out, so if you want one, visit https://www.flatheadelectric.com/ and purchase one as soon as possible.
