Bozeman Community At Its Best
To support the longevity of such a valued, mission driven organization like Eagle Mount, the project was executed in the spirit of good will and in-kind contributions. Ken Ketchum, a local citizen committed to increasing renewable energy in Bozeman as well as a previous OnSite Energy customer, generously funded the project as a gift that will continue to give over the years; OnSite Energy provided the engineering, procurement and construction services at cost; and SIME, a local contractor and Eagle Mount board member, donated excavation services.
Making a DifferenceEvery kilowatt-hour produced by this solar system will add up to a significant reduction in the long-term operating cost of Eagle Mount's campus. Its environmental impact will also be significant, estimated to avoid the CO2 emissions equivalent of burning 450,645 lbs of coal over its 25-year expected lifetime.
"Eagle Mount is very grateful for the opportunity to make our 19-acre campus more environmentally friendly while also being fiscally responsible" stated Jennifer Beaston Hedrick, Executive Director of Eagle Mount. "It is a great project that showcases my favorite aspects of Bozeman; generosity, forward thinking, cooperation amongst multiple people, common sense, and get it done attitude."
