Positive Energy Solar started out of the Santa Fe Business incubator and was one of the first successful graduates of the program.

  • The follow up once installed is beyond expectations. Their team is made up of solar experts who really care about their clients.

    Over the last 6 years, my wife and I have worked with Positive Energy Solar to install solar panels on 2 homes we've owned here in Santa Fe. From specifying to design and placement, their service and workmanship are excellent. After the installation they followed up to assure full output and taught me how to read the monitoring system. In both cases they specified the correct system through careful review of my electric bills, then did proper installation with very durable components and methods of anchoring, all properly wired to code. The follow up once installed is beyond expectations. Their team is made up of solar experts who really care about their clients. We are very pleased to be converting the New Mexico Sun into electric energy. We are very pleased with the entire program and results.

  • The whole team worked excellently together, demonstrating how team work can really work well in this sort of situation. Thanks for having good people working there.

    I wanted to get in touch about the recent work that [your] crew did repairing the solar tracker that was wobbly and making a lot of noise. Since this was the first time the tracker manufacturer had heard of the problem of the bearings wearing out, obviously there was no guide for Don to follow in fixing the thing. He came out with a crew of appropriate size for the job, had all the equipment and tools he needed for the job, and had obviously thought a great deal about how to proceed. He had designed a clever jig to hold the tracker panels in place while the one large bolt that holds the assembly together was removed. He manufactured the jig on site, requiring considerable carpentry skill, and put it in place, and it worked very well. Keeping the large panel stationary during the removal and replacement of the bearings in the wind was quite an accomplishment. The whole team worked excellently together, demonstrating how team work can really work well in this sort of situation. I wanted to take the opportunity to commend Don on a job well done, and the rest of the crew as well, though Don clearly had thought through all aspects of the job and did it well!! Thanks for having good people working there.

  • My husband's high standards for the installation were met. We're grateful to have your professional service to install and maintain our solar system.

    To the Installers, concerning your skill: You did a beautiful job: the conduit pipes fit the house. There are no overlaps or gaps. I appreciate the subtle bends in the pipe that you took time to study and create. The pipe fits the contours of the stucco wall, not just around corners but also along the lengths of the "flat wall" which have slight curves. I appreciate your finished conduit work as both skill and artistry. Thank you for painting the conduit with intelligence, that is, smoothly and with no mess, splatters or any other potential detraction. I was worried about the effect of the cold (in the 30 degrees') on the paint on that day, but problems with the paint didn't materialize due to your skill/experience. Concerning the actual solar panels, sitting on their weighted "cradles:" They look clean, modern and efficient - which actually means they're quite beautiful. My husband's high standards for the installation were also met. We're looking forward when, after the inspection, we can finally turn on the array and know that we're utilizing the sun's energy rather than using fossil fuels. Very exciting! We're grateful to have your professional service to install and maintain our solar system. Respectfully, Dolores & Paul M.
