Solar Energy Storage for Your Home
Whether you’re looking for the peace of mind provided by backup power during outages, a lower carbon footprint by using more of your solar energy, or simply to have more control over your home’s energy usage, solar batteries can provide safety and freedom inside your home, regardless of what happens outside of it. Positive Energy Solar’s offering of home battery solutions includes Tesla Powerwall, Enphase and Generac batteries.
Most residential battery systems fall into two basic categories: backup loads and whole home backup. The first category requires dramatically less storage capacity and generally costs less than a sophisticated entire-home battery system.

What can solar + batteries do for you?
Using more of your solar energy
Battery storage provides people going solar-- as well as those with existing systems-- an efficient way to stretch that sun energy through the evening and into the night. Solar panels with batteries can operate in self-consumption mode, which allows homeowners to charge their battery during the day, when solar production typically exceeds electricity consumption, and discharge the battery at night. This means homeowners will be able to utilize more of the clean energy their solar system produces, while reducing dependence on their utility.
Never be in the dark again
Increased prevalence of severe weather events, forest fires, aging electrical infrastructure, and other factors are resulting in more frequent power outages in New Mexico and across the United States. Solar energy systems are a great way to save money and generate clean energy. However, traditional grid-tied solar arrays are designed to shut down when they lose grid connection during a power outage to avoid back-feeding the grid. Solar batteries solve this issue by storing your excess power for when you need it most, allowing you to generate and use energy without sending any of it back to the grid.
Whether you’re looking for a whole-home battery backup solution, or just need to ensure the lights stay on at night and food stays fresh in the refrigerator – Positive Energy Solar has an energy storage solution to fit your needs.
Protection against utility rate changes
While most New Mexico utilities don’t charge rates based on demand levels (known as time-of-use), numerous utilities in the West and Southwest do, and many expect this to affect New Mexicans in the coming years as utility rates continue to rise and future smart-grid infrastructure is rolled out. With a solar + battery solution, you’ll be prepared for whatever the future holds.
Incentives Offer Big Savings, But Only For A Limited Time - Apply the 26% Federal Tax Credit Through 2022
If your battery is combined with a solar energy system, you may eligible for the 26% Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for New Mexico residents. The 26% ITC is only available through the year 2022. In 2023, the incentive drops again to 22% before ending permanently for New Mexico homeowners in 2024.
