Missoula businesses utilize, explain renewable energy for the masses

April 14, 2018

From exercise equipment that creates electricity to a how-to guide on financing solar panels for residential homes, some Missoula businesses are putting major efforts into sustainability as Earth Day nears on April 22.

Paul Herendeen, the director of impact market development at Missoula Federal Credit Union, has put together a detailed brochure called "Financial Analysis of Residential Solar: A Guide for Homeowners" to give people a simplified way to find out of solar panels are a cost-effective option for them.

The guide, available online at http://www.missoulafcu.org/environment/, gives anyone thinking about solar panels in Montana information about what to expect, including potential risks and opportunities.
