Backup Power

Solar Energy Storage for Your New Mexico 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 is New Mexico's local, trusted Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer.

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 a Solar Battery Backup System Do for You?

Use 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.

Our Reviews

  • Thorough and supportive from start to finish

    Positive Energy Solar was responsive and helpful from the time we first called, through our decision-making process, and throughout the planning and installation of our system. Dave went over the options with us and answered all our questions, Zach worked with us to plan our system and guide us through the necessary steps with PNM and the recommended electrician, who was also very helpful and efficient, and the installation went smoothly and as planned. Dave also followed up with us to be sure the system was working as it should. We are very pleased with Positive Energy and would recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone considering a solar installation...

  • Couldn't be more pleased!

    Our experience with Positive Energy Solar couldn't have been easier or more professional. Our contact, Taylor, explained everything clearly, giving us various options to choose from, both in terms of how much solar we wanted to install and whether we wanted to pay up front or choose a pay-as-you-generate plan. Everyone we dealt with was professional and courteous and we got our panels installed in a timely manner. We are now enjoying our website monitor that tells us every day how much electricity we have generated. Between our solar array and our new electric car, we are thrilled to be "part of the solution."

  • 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.
