The expert team at Sunelco worked with multiple partners to design and install 350 solar panels atop the Parking Garage in downtown Missoula, MT.
The 85 kW solar array atop the East Front Street Parking Garage is expected to produce 100% of the structure’s estimated electricity usage. Assuming the cost of utility-provided electricity remains the same, the payback period is around 25 years. As utility rates increase, the payback period will decrease. The solar modules have a 25 year warranty and are expected to produce power upwards of 40 years.
