SunPower's Trusted Local Installer In Albuquerque

Updated: 4 days ago



As a small local company serving our friends and neighbors, Photon Rainbow is proud to offer the highest quality solar panels on the market. We were very intentional in deciding which panels to use for our solar installations and we'd love to tell you more about why we trust SunPower products over any other.


We're thrilled that in 2023, Photon Rainbow was named SunPower's Regional Rising Star - officially becoming SunPower's trusted local installer in New Mexico.


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to fill out the form at the bottom of this post to receive a call (and a free quote) from one of our SunPower experts!


Solar in Albuquerque, New Mexico


Every New Mexican is familiar with the beautiful, sunny days we are blessed with most of the year. What better way to pay homage to those sunny days than by installing as many solar systems as possible in our community to power our homes sustainably? Solar power is a clean, sustainable, and affordable way for us to take care of this beautiful place we call home.


With an average of 310 sunny days per year, well above the national average, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Rio Rancho, and the rest of New Mexico are some of the best places in the country for solar panel installation. 


While there are a range of factors that go into designing the perfect solar panel system for each home, our unique location in the desert offers a great starting point.


Why SunPower panels in Albuquerque?


5 Reasons To Choose SunPower Panels In Albuquerque, New Mexico

We completely understand that as a customer, it can be overwhelming trying to weigh the price vs quality of panels to ensure you're making the right choice with any major solar panel company. 


That's why, we at Photon Rainbow, did as much research as possible and took the guesswork out of it so that we could offer our Albuquerque customers peace of mind.


Here are a few reasons we trust SunPower solar modules for our Albuquerque and surrounding area solar arrays.


1. SunPower is the longest-running solar panel manufacturer still in business in 2024


On their website, SunPower reminds us that "with nearly 40 years of dedicated solar experience, we're the only U.S.-based solar company that's been around longer than our 25-year warranty."


Most people don't know that warranties are provided by solar manufacturers, not solar companies. At Photon Rainbow, we want to give you the best all-around experience with going solar to make the decision easy. It's important to us that your warranty really means something. 

2. SunPower's 25-year warranties will always be guaranteed


Speaking of SunPower's warranty, SunPower is a publicly traded company. This means that we are not worried, at all, about them disappearing on us or on you! If you ever have any issues, SunPower's tech support is just a quick call away.


3. SunPower panels have very low degradation and high efficiency


Given the amount of direct sunlight our roofs are subjected to in Albuquerque and the rest of New Mexico, having a panel that is going to withstand that heat is extremely important. When you decide to put a solar system on your home, you want to be sure that the system is going to work at its optimal level for as long as possible. SunPower panels are at the top of their class when it comes to having low degradation and high efficiency - perfect for Albuquerque weather.


4. SunPower has received over 1,000 patents for solar innovation


This is important because it means that SunPower is constantly learning, growing, and pivoting to keep up with the times and offer the best possible technology to its community. The solar industry is constantly evolving and we trust that SunPower is providing our customers the most up-to-date technology available in the United States.  


5. They have an app for homeowners!


Again, at Photon Rainbow, our mission is to genuinely serve our community and empower our neighbors to switch to solar. We love that SunPower panels integrate with an app that allows you, the homeowners, to easily monitor your solar energy production. 


Admittedly, there are other premium solar panels out there. But there's a reason that SunPower is the longest-running panel manufacturer. We understand that installing a solar energy system on your home is a big decision and we partnered with SunPower to ensure that we can offer you the best experience we possibly can.


Photon Rainbow: SunPower's Regional Rising Star of 2023

We started this business four years ago because we didn't see any other solar company offering the quality and value that we knew was possible. We wanted to be able to offer the highest quality equipment, the best customer service, and in-house installations. It started with phone calls, a website, and storing panels in our garage! 


As we've grown, SunPower has continued to be the obvious choice for our solar panels. Now, we're humbled to say that SunPower, a global leader in solar technology, has grown to trust us as well! In 2023, SunPower named Photon Rainbow their Regional Rising Start of 2023.


We believe this is a reflection of our dedication to doing the right thing for our community and offering the best service we can. Our solar consultations are designed to help us understand the unique needs of you and your home. And likewise, we'll help you understand the ins and outs of switching to solar in Albuquerque like New Mexico state programs, the federal solar tax credit that is available to you, and how to navigate New Mexico utility companies.


You'll never receive marketing calls from Photon Rainbow or find us knocking on your door. However, we're always here to help when you need us! We are thrilled to help make positive change in Albuquerque by being a solar provider with integrity. We have our own sales and install team meaning we're with you through the entire process. Plus, we pride ourselves on finding the lowest-cost loan options for you and helping you with your unique needs. 


The bottom line: we keep solar simple, we answer questions, and at the end of the day, we are incredibly motivated to get another house off coal energy and into carbon-free renewable energy.
