The Good

  • Cost
  • Product Offerings
  • Extended Hours
  • Qualifications
  • Warranty

Cost

The average Big Sky Solar system costs $2.75 per watt, or $13,600 total before tax credits. The average residential solar system costs between $3 and $5 per watt, or $15,000 to $25,000 total, putting a Big Sky Solar system below average in terms of cost.

Product Offerings

While some solar companies exclusively sell one line of solar panels, Big Sky Solar is an authorized dealer for Panasonic, LG, Enphase, and Tesla products. This gives Big Sky Solar customers more options than many other companies do.

Big Sky Solar also offers battery storage and electric vehicle charging stations in addition to solar panels.

Extended Hours

Big Sky Solar is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., giving customers time to meet with the company before or after the typical 9 to 5 workday.

Qualifications

Big Sky Solar was founded in 2003, giving it more experience in the solar industry than many of its competitors.

Big Sky Solar’s president, Mike Sudik, has been working with solar panels since 1998. He is NABCEP certified, a Northwestern Energy approved solar installed, and a Montana licensed electrician.

Warranty

The company’s products and workmanship are guaranteed for 25 years, making Big Sky Solar’s warranty one of the longer ones in the industry.

The Bad

  • Only Grid-Tied Systems Available
  • Limited Geographic Availability

Only Grid-Tied Systems Available

When it comes to solar power, customers have to choose between a grid-tied system and an off-grid system. Grid-tied systems shut down automatically when the power goes out, while off-grid systems can continue to work when the power goes out.

Big Sky Solar offers only grid-tied solar systems; no off-grid systems are available.

Limited Geographic Availability

Big Sky Solar is based in Missoula, Montana, with no other physical locations. This limits its customer base to locals.

The Bottom Line

With decades of experience, Big Sky Solar has been in the industry for longer than many other solar companies.

Additionally, Big Sky Solar’s president, Mike Sudik, has been working with solar panels for even longer than the company has existed. Sudik is NABCEP certified, a Northwestern Energy approved solar installer, and a Montana licensed electrician, making him a well-qualified solar installer.

With a 25-year warranty on both products and workmanship, Big Sky Solar’s systems are guaranteed for decades to come. 

And with early-morning and evening hours, even customers who work a typical 9-to-5 schedule should be able to find time to meet with Big Sky Solar.

Unfortunately, Big Sky Solar offers only grid-tied solar systems; off-grid systems are not an option. Big Sky Solar’s battery backup systems can protect customers from losing power during outages, but customers who really want an off-grid system will have to look elsewhere. 

But for Montana residents who are interested in a grid-tied solar system, Big Sky Solar offers some of the best prices in the industry.
