Here is a system that was designed with growth in mind.
There are many considerations to take into account when you are designing a solar electric system. And growth is one of the considerations. Perhaps you design a system to suit your current electric usage, but then want to add an electric car into the mix. So the question is can you add to a solar electric system. The answer is a qualified yes.
Discuss you current and potential needs with your design consultant. Design the system with a large enough inverter to handle future loads and additional modules. Perhaps you hope to add batteries in the future. All of this is significantly easier if your start with the end system in mind.
Solarize Missoula: an initiative intended to reduce the cost of solar for homeowners and businesses in Missoula, sponsored by The city of Missoula, Missoula Federal Credit Union and Montana Department of Environmental Quality are co-sponsors with MREA and Climate Smart for the Missoula program.
“We’re trying to make it simple for the homeowner to participate,” said Bryan von Lossberg, a Missoula City Council member who’s helping coordinate the campaign. “It’s modeled after the Solarize program that started in Portland (Oregon) five or six years ago. Now there are Solarize programs running all across the country.”
Here are some fun installations from Solarize Missoula Participants. Join Them!!.
This array offset’s 100% of the average US home energy consumption. Are you average? Probably not. Many of our customers use less electric power than average , as they are aware of their footprint. Click here for current power production of this array and a sample of the monitoring available for your system.

City Life Community Center is a state of the art 34,000 square foot facility for teens in the heart of Missoula, MT. It exists to serve as a much needed resource for teens, providing programming and events for a variety of interests.
In February 2016 SBS Solar installed 72 Solar Electric Modules completing a 23,400-watt solar array. Nine tons of ballast ensures the panels won’t leave the roof. The only change to the physical roof was two small holes drilled to conduit the energy into the building.
