Residential Solar Panels in New Mexico

How We Choose the Best Solar Panels

Solar panels are the primary component of a solar power system. We only work with the most reputable solar panel manufacturers, so the solar panel system that we design, build and install on your property will produce the amount of energy that we say it will for the next 30 years or longer.

Our long track record of serving the solar needs of Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Santa Fe, and the rest of New Mexico since 1997 gives us the insight needed to know which solar panels to use and which to avoid, as not all solar panels are created equal.

Solar Panel Selection Process

When determining what solar panels to use for our residential solar power installations, we adhere to a strict product selection criteria -- Not just any solar panel can be included in a Positive Energy Solar system. We only provide solar panels from manufacturers who are financially stable, have a proven track record, and are socially responsible. Other selection factors include:

  • Has the manufacturer been making solar panels for at least as long as their warranty period?
  • Will the solar panels hold up in our desert climate?
  • What is the efficiency and degradation rate of the solar panel?
  • Is the manufacturer socially responsible and aligned with the interests and values of Positive Energy Solar?

Having been in the industry for as long as we have, we've watched as numerous solar manufacturers have come and gone. We are among the most established and reputable solar power companies and know how to maximize our customers' return on investment.

    • 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."
