Understanding Solar Incentives

There are two main types of incentives: net metering and tax credits. These incentives can reduce the amount you spend on your solar panels and can even start earning you money if you produce extra power.

Net metering is an agreement between you and your power company. When your installation generates extra power, like during the middle of the day, this power feeds into the power company's grid. You receive a credit for this extra power, which you can then use to buy extra power when you need it. In cases, net metering can result in no power bill—or even getting paid extra per month.

The federal tax credit allows you to claim 26% of your system cost on your federal income taxes. It's a great way to reduce your installation costs. However, the tax credit drops to 22% next year—and goes away entirely in 2022. Now is the best time to install a solar system.

New Mexico’s solar income tax credit was temporarily eliminated, but as of July 2020, it's back! You can claim 10% of your system cost up to $6,000 on your state taxes. This incentive is set to stay on the books until 2028.

While the upfront costs of a solar installation can feel overwhelming, most systems pay for themselves within five years. A well-installed system can run for 25 to 30 years and save over $70,000 in electricity costs. That gives you 20+ years of free power to enjoy, with minimal maintenance and upkeep costs. The upfront costs are well worth the savings!

The Solar Panel Installation Process

If you've decided that solar power is the right way forward for your home or business, your first step should be to get in touch with a reputable installer. There are many solar companies in Albuquerque, but none of them have the same commitment to customer service and quality that we do at Affordable Solar.

When you first get in touch with us, we'll send over a team of experienced solar installers to evaluate your home. They'll examine your roof slope, the direction in which your roof faces, and the overall space. They'll also discuss your electricity usage to find out how much you use on average during the month.

This information lets us design the perfect solar system for your needs. Some buildings need larger systems, but others benefit from small, more cost-effective solutions. While we often recommend the largest system your roof can accommodate, we'll always take your circumstances and needs into account.

Once you've decided on how many solar panels you’d like to install and whether you want an independent or grid tie-in system, our team will have your system up and running in no time. We can also handle any future maintenance you may need (which will vary on the system type you choose).

If you want to go deeper into the specifics of choosing the right solar system, check out our blog or contact us. We're always happy to discuss the technical aspects of solar panels. We want you to make an informed decision and be 100% satisfied with your new system.
