How to Know you are Choosing the Right Solar Company
When making the decision to install solar on your home or business finding the right company can be confusing. There are a few things that are important to consider while choosing the best company for your project.
Choosing a local company ensures the company has a vested interest in the area. National companies will come into town sweeping away all the local companies but aren't able to offer long-term service to the client. They often times have huge expenditures that they pass along to anyone who purchases from them. Local companies like NM Solar Group know the environment they are serving. They will know the native roofs in the area and can know the best practices to get you the best performing system for your situation.
Honest and Forthwith
When you call the company, does a human answer the phone? Can you ask for the owner's phone number, and call them at any time? These are qualities you should expect from a Solar Company. When asking questions, be sure you feel validated and understood. Solar is a complicated process, and there are no bad questions. Find a company who is happy to answer the phone when you call, a company who knows your name and one who is happy to answer all of your questions.
A solar company needs not have a complicated contract. Be sure you understand the contract before signing. If you are working with a company with a lot of small print, stop and ask if this is in your best interest or the best interest of the company.
Ask around. Find a company that has installed solar on homes around you. If you know someone with solar, ask who they went with and what their experience was. Look online for reviews, and even ask a company for references. The solar company you chose should be proud to be a customer service driven company. This is a company who will be working with you for an extended period of time, be sure they treat their clients well and are good at solving problems that can arise.

New Mexico Deficit
New Mexico Deficit On The Rise
Solar energy companies in Albuquerque
New Mexico is currently running a large financial deficit. The New Mexico deficit has been caused by many different things.
Mainly, the fact that we hung our hat on oil and gas and population growth in New Mexico is negative.
A lot of people want to blame Susana for this New Mexico deficit, but for me I blame the state as a whole. WHY AREN'T WE FOCUSING ON OUR GREATEST ASSET? The sun.
Best Sun In Unitied States
We have literally the best sun in the entire United States for solar. This asset can't be duplicated in any other state.
New Mexico solar is where it is at! We have a solar panel testing facility in Albuquerque called CFV that tests solar panels from all over the world because of our great sun.
The irradiance that is produced is 30-40% more than San Diego. Many consider San Diego the capital of solar in the USA.
Transmission Lines Are Available
New Mexico as a state has decided to start shutting down the Four Corner power plans that do coal. Their is a transmission line that could allow us to push electricity to California.
Why don't we sell them electricity produced by a large solar farm? California currently buys electricity at about twice the rate than New Mexico does.
If we produced electricity for them we could not only get our deficit under control, but we could create a wealth never before seen in New Mexico. We have the sun.
We have the transmission line. All we need is some action.
Have you ever tried calling a call center and no one will take responsibility for anything?
Then they keep transferring you to a different department without communicating to each other?
You have to ask to speak with a manager just to get someone who will listen to you.
Lastly, then the call gets disconnected. Not a fun scenario, but I am sure many of you have had that experience.
No Long Chain Of Command at This Local Solar Company
It is hard to as a small business owner to wear many different hats everyday.
It isn't easy running a business, but it is worth it.
At NM Solar Group we don't have to pay a long chain of managers that manage managers that then get managed by another manager that is the brother of the CEO and doesn't even know anything about solar.
We keep our expenses low and we run lean and mean. We are then able to pass those savings on to our clients and not relinquish value or quality.
Local solar is the way to go for many reasons, but the main reason is because we care about New Mexico and what happens to her.
