Whether for a business or a residence, solar can put YOU in control of how much of your own electricity to produce- and lock in that rate for decades. Depending on factors such as available surface area, shading and of course budget, you can install enough panels to produce all or a portion of your energy.
While 80% of electricity in New Mexico is generated by burning fossil fuels, you can OWN your energy using the free fuel provided by the sun- no emissions, just natural, clean energy.
A solar array starts saving you money the moment it's commissioned, reducing home energy bills and operating expenses for a business.
Lower bills today, and protection from higher bills in the future. Perhaps the #1 reason our customers choose solar- to eliminate the impact of rising and volatile energy prices to future budgets- essentially a financial planning tool.
A solar energy system adds to the value of your property- and in New Mexico the added value is exempt from taxes. Appraisal journals estimate that every dollar of utility bill savings translates to $10-$20 increase in property value.
Adding a solar charged battery back to your grid-tied solar system WILL keep the lights on, and other loads identified as critical, during a power outage. Battery backup enables peace of mind, but it also means additional components and costs. To discuss the pros and cons of a battery backup versus a generator please contact us.
Obviously the clean, renewable power generated from the sun helps the environment. It displaces energy generated from carbon-emitting sources, uses no water and is produced on site.
Solar modules are built to last, almost every manufacturer back their product with a 25 year power production warranty.
