Our Process

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.

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.

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!
