Oasis Montana Inc.
Residential Solar Electricity and
It is most assuredly winter in western Montana. With heavy mountain and valley snows, the skiers are in ecstasy and we hope for a good lasting snowpack to fill our aquifers and reservoirs, and to help prevent summer wildfires.
Sometimes when there's less than three inches of snow on the solar modules and it's sunny, you'll still get perhaps 25 - 30% of their output; some light does get through the snow. But when you get a lot of snow, you certainly don't get a lot of solar power.
The solar federal tax credits are not set to expire until the end of 2020, and we do have some folks finishing up their purchases now to get it on this year's taxes. If you have any questions about a solar power project, do not hesitate to give us a call!
We are also happy to see the ITC extension of the solar tax credit -- keeping our industry and clean energy on a upward trend. If you are thinking of a solar project for your home or business, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
