Top Quality Panels
1. Personal consultation
Before anything else, you'll meet with a community solar advocate to look at your home (and electric bill) and discuss whether solar is right for you. No commitment!
2. Design your solar system
Our OpenSolar software helps you and your advocate find the most efficient layout of solar panels to fit your specific home needs (as well as future projections).
3. Wait for solar permits...
Sadly this part is out of our hands. Processing time depends on your county & energy provider. But we'll submit everything by the book, and follow up for you as needed.
4. Solar panel installation
However complex, weird, or delicate your project, our in-house construction/electrical team installs every detail to the highest quality standards. Then inspection & activate!
How many and what size solar panels you need for your home depends on your usage. We'll help you figure out the right amount kW for your current (and future) needs.
5. Activation & ongoing service
At this point, you'll have a relationship with your solar advocate, who will check in to ensure everything is in tip-top shape... even your roof-top! You can reach out to us anytime you need assistance.

You worked hard for your home. Now it's time for your home to work hard for you... by sitting & catching sunlight.
How solar works with PNM
Solar & the grid: seasonal tales
Unless you're near the equator, the amount of sunlight hitting your roof varies by the season. Even with solar, in New Mexico cities like Albuquerque & Santa Fe you still have to stay connected to PNM energy. Summer surplus goes into the grid as credit; which you draw upon during winter months when your solar production is lower.
PNM won't pay you for anything extra – so we'll help design a solar panel system that finds the perfect balance for your typical (or predicted) usage.
Thank you for making my solar experience easy and painless... [Mark] walked me through every step and took many a phone call after work hours to help me through the process. Looking forward to reducing my carbon footprint by providing renewable energy to the ABQ grid!
