Our Story

Having started in an Airstream trailer in 1998, Affordable Solar’s roots trace back to a passion for renewable energy, a strong commitment to community, and having fun. With many hundreds of megawatts of solar and energy storage projects underway and 150+ employees, Affordable Solar has outgrown the Airstream but remains committed to the principles on which the company was founded.  And we’re making the world a better place. One solar installation at a time.
Affordable Solar has installed over 2,500 solar arrays 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 complement every solar system with our dedication to teamwork, integrity and outstanding customer service. Because we love our work and we want you to love it too.

We are Trusted, Reliable, and Local. That is our guarantee.
