Why should you consider making the switch to solar power today?
Let’s ignore for a second the benefits to our environment that switching to solar provides (some estimate that switching to a 5 kWh electric array can offset the deforestation of over 100 trees per year!) and instead focus in on the bottom line of switching – the MONEY. With high quality solar systems costing New Mexico homeowners an average of about $20,000, it’s important to understand the options available to you for financing such a large expense.
We occasionally hear from those interested in switching to solar that certain name brands are on their mind. These people usually express that they want to look into such headliners as Tesla. Of course, having the trendy Tesla logo somewhere on your solar panels might be what some people want.

When it comes to owning a home, there are many expenses that have to be considered. It isn’t surprising that with the rise of electricity many people are switching to solar across the country. In New Mexico, alone there was a 7% increase for electricity September 2016 – and that number is projected to grow even more!

The Taylors have owned their adobe styled home in Rio Rancho for over 15 years.
