Headquartered in Albuquerque, NM

Started in an Airstream trailer in 1998, Affordable Solar’s roots trace back to a passion for renewable energy, strong community, and having fun. With $52 million in revenue and 80+ 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.

Affordable Solar is the best place to work. Not only do I get to be a part of a huge industry that is working to protect the environment for future generations, but I get to do it with the best company in the industry!

…Perhaps the most telling comment we can provide is to mention that every inspector at every stage asked who did the installation and we said Affordable Solar and they said, “Yeah. Those guys never mess up.” All the people involved have been both professional and pleasant…

I recommended Affordable Solar to a coworker and her experience was just as positive as mine. They really go out of their way to make sure everything is done correctly.
