Changes in the solar industry, rapid growth, diversification and expansion have not altered our dedication to the core principles that Affordable Solar was built upon. We have remained stable and credible for over 19 years and our reputation among our customers and business associates is a reflection of our consistency. We hold the value of relationships above everything else, built on our belief that working together as a community is essential to succeeding in business and bettering our society. We do what we say we are going to do, not just before the project, but for years after.
At Affordable Solar, we provide more than a solar system. We provide two decades of experience, an excellent reputation of performance, and the peace of mind that goes with them. See for yourself why New Mexicans prefer the fully certified, sun-loving team at Affordable Solar.
Leader in the solar industry in NM since 1998, Affordable Solar has installed more solar in NM than another other company.

Affordable Solar has installed over 2,000 solar systems in New Mexico and supplied more than 20,000 systems to commercial, industrial, scientific, community and residential customers in 96 countries. Our business model is built on a commitment to complimenting every solar system with our dedication to teamwork, integrity and outstanding customer service.
After receiving 3 quotes from separate companies we decided to go with Affordable Solar based on several reasons. The expertise and ability to answer the many questions we had at the initial consultation fully and in a manner we could understand. The quote was prepared very well and compared to the other 2 companies we were quoted on it was clear the solution offered by Affordable Solar was superior. There was very good communication from Affordable at all stages of the project and every member of staff we came in to contact with from the installers to the electrician were courteous, left the job site in great condition and were rally easy to work with. We are very happy with the system and would choose Affordable Solar again. We have no hesitation in recommending Affordable Solar to anyone contemplating having Solar installed.

Everyone at Affordable Solar was extremely helpful and professional during the sale and installation of our system. Justin, who was our sales rep, has a wealth of industry knowledge which he communicates in easy to understand terms. Even after installation Justin has been very responsive and has helped us with problems and questions that were not his or his company's responsibility. The team at Affordable, and especially Justin, provide truly excellent customer service.
The Affordable Solar folks are very experienced in residential solar installation and completely honest to work with. They began with consultation sessions that made sure the design was appropriately sized to our usage patterns and that it would maximize the savings we would receive relative to our expenditure. They laid out a specific work plan and schedule, and adhered to it. When we realized that an upgrade in electrical capacity would be needed, they included our personal electrician's efforts in the project plan so that it was an integrated effort. They also handled all needed Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) and governmental approvals as well as all of the paperwork needed to obtain both the State of New Mexico and Federal tax credits.
Once the installation was complete and the system turned on, they provided an online monitoring system that provides real-time tracking of the performance of all of the solar panels. As it turned out, one out of our 41 panels was not functioning at the outset, but they identified and fixed the problem right away. The system has now been in operation for almost six months and there have been no other problems. However, if anything ever happens, we are confident that they will be right on top of it.
As for monthly costs, we have been saving as much as $400 per month during the peak summer months, while in non-peak months the system is producing more power than we can use and which allow us to build up credits with PNM. We project that we will effectively not have a monthly electric bill from PNM (except for about $11 in certain unavoidable fixed charges) during at least half the months of the year.
To summarize, this was a flawless project handled by a competent and honest company, and we are a completely satisfied customer.
Your company is great. Customer service, you guys helped me with my questions, even though I had so many.
The panels were heavier then I had thought. Thanks again.
Affordable Solar was great. They took care of every detail (with the exception of inspections where the homeowner presence was required). They assisted with all paperwork, including having the proper forms for tax credits. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Affordable Solar for residential or commercial work. I particularly like the application of "Micro-Inverters" for residential systems. They insure the highest reliability and output.
Our solar array has been in use for about 2 1/2 yrs now and we've only had to pay PNM three times. A very efficient set up. During the last black out our battery back up system worked great and we were the only house as far a we coul see that had power. Money well spent!
Affordable Solar did a great job with our installation! They were thoroughly professional from start to finish. The solar panels are generating exactly what we were told they would, and our electricity bills have dropped to zero. I highly recommend Justin Dewey and the folks at Affordable Solar!
We are very happy with Affordable Solar. Justin shepherded us through the process, including the tax rebate forms, in a patient, clear, and skillful fashion. We are producing lots of energy, and the follow-up from the folks at Affordable has been steady and terrific.
