• Howdy

    A Solar-Powered Hello

    Independent Power Systems recently installed a 32.027 kW commercial solar power system that spells out “Howdy” to greet travelers using the nearby Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.

    Project Highlights

    Location: Bozeman, Montana

    System Size: 32.027 kW

    Est. Energy Production: 42,387 kWh/yr

    Project Type: Commercial Solar

    Customer: Synergy Resource Solutions


Synergy Resource Solutions commissioned Independent Power Systems to design and install a unique commercial solar power system on the roof of one of its facilities in Bozeman, Montana using 101 SunPower SPR327 high-efficiency commercial solar panels. Given the building’s proximity to Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, the owner of Synergy Resource Solutions wanted to give a warm Montana hello to travelers flying in on the final approach flight path by having the solar panels spell out “HOWDY”. The total solar generation of the system offsets the electrical consumption of three different buildings on the property. A monitoring system records the production of each of the 5 SunPower inverters.
