Solar PV Power Supports Blackfeet Community College, United States

Blackfeet Community College, a Tribal College located in northwest Montana, installed four grid-tied solar photovoltaic (PV) systems to support energy needs of four campus buildings. The project was developed to create access to renewable energy benefits for the Blackfeet community, generate energy cost savings for the college, and create opportunities for students to learn about renewable energy, explore energy career pathways, and participate in workforce development through hands-on training.

From March 2022 through March 2023, the PV systems generated approximately 63,053 kilowatt-hours, enough electricity to supply six average American homes for one year. The total cost savings for the Tribal College is approximately $5,500 annually, or approximately $165,000 over the 30-year life of the systems.
