"We hired Tony and his crew to install our system in 2006. It is working wonderfully 10 years later! They even came back to take off the system and re-install it when we had the terrible hail storm in 2009. The roof needed to be replaced but the panels were unscathed. We are very content with our net metered system and highly recommend Independent Power Systems!"

"We hired IPS on the recommendation of a friend who had had them do their solar installation. From beginning to end of the project, Dan and his crew were extremely professional, on task, and easy to work with. In fact, when the inspector came, he said that, of all the solar installers in Bozeman, IPS is by far the best. We completely agree."

"5 years ago Independent Power Systems installed panels on my house. They were very professional, the installation was flawless, and panels worked great. I just moved to a new house and immediately contacted them for an estimate. They came promptly, gave me a very good feedback and I will go with the new panels in the near future."

"IPS itself had three estimates that provided me with flexible options and prices. Their insight and experience made this project a great success. They also handled the government red tape, utility contacts, and directed me towards a state DEQ loan. Special thanks to Dan, Lance and Dustin—great people to work with!"

Save Big on Solar

Solar Incentives in Montana

Electricity may be relatively inexpensive in Montana, but that doesn’t mean you can save big with solar and save big on solar. Montana has a variety of generous solar incentives for homeowners, businesses, and even nonprofits to help make the switch to renewable energy even more affordable. Learn more about the available solar incentives in Montana or contact us to talk more about the specifics of your project.

E+ Renewable Energy Program

NorthWestern Energy (NWE) provides semi-annual funding for the installation of renewable energy systems on nonprofit or government/public buildings through its E+ Renewable Energy Program with the aim of increasing the visibility of such technologies to a broader audience. This program is designed to support projects that provide an educational and visible representation of renewable energy technologies by tapping into a limited amount of Universal System Benefits (USB) funding.

Red Lodge Library E+ Renewable Energy Program


Montana requires all investor-owned utilities to offer Net Metering programs, which compensate owners of solar power systems with energy credits for any excess power they feed back into the grid. Net Metering programs help to quickly recoup the costs of going solar.

Montana Solar Tax Credits

In addition to any federal tax incentives, Montana homeowners can also get benefits from the state for installing their system. Montana offers a state solar tax credit on 100% of the price of the solar power system, up to $500 for individuals and $1,000 for households. 


Adding solar panels increases your property value, but you won’t have to worry about that affecting your property taxes. Montana has a state property tax exemption on solar power systems for 10 years. Even better, your system gets a sales tax exemption too!
