One-hundred solar panels installed on our building are now producing electricity!
Over their 30-year anticipated lifespan, we estimate The Friendship Center will be able to redirect $120,000-150,000 in electricity cost savings to our services for those experiencing domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
The Friendship Center received funding through the NorthWestern Energy Efficiency Plus (E+) Renewable Energy Program. The program is established with Universal System Benefits (USB) funding collected from all NorthWestern customers in Montana.
“The solar panels will essentially generate revenue over the next 30 years by offsetting electricity costs that normally are paid for through our general operating fund,” said Friendship Center Executive Director Gina Boesdorfer. “This is a win-win-win for our clients, our community, and our earth.”
