Bringing Clean Energy to New Mexico

They don’t call New Mexico the Land of Enchantment for nothing! The state has some of the best solar incentives in America along with plenty of sunshine. That’s why it's one of the best places in the U.S. for homeowners who want to save on their energy bills.

Homeowners across the state also have access to rebate programs and incentives that can save them thousands of dollars on the cost of installing their solar energy system.

Solar Benefits in New Mexico

  • No out-of-pocket costs
  • 20+ years financing term
  • Generous tax and state incentives
  • You can “rent” your system for a monthly fee with a 25-year system guarantee: if it breaks, we’ll fix it
  • When you sell your home, you can assign the lease to the new homeowner

Solar Incentives & Rebates in New Mexico

The beautiful Spanish architecture in Santa Fe and grand caves of Carlsbad aren’t the only great features New Mexico has to offer. The sun shines brightly on this Southwestern state and offers its residents plenty of reasons to go solar:

  • Net Metering

    Adding solar panels to your roof means you can also get credits for the excess energy your system produces each month thanks to the state’s net metering policy. Those credits can then be used when your system doesn’t generate enough power (at night, on cloudy days, etc). Xcel Energy customers enjoy the top utility net metering program in New Mexico.

  • Sustainable Building Tax Credit

    If you install solar panels as part of your sustainable building efforts on your home, New Mexico’s state government will credit you on your taxes. To qualify, your home needs to be certified as sustainable by the U.S. Green Building Council and then the credit value will be determined by your certification level. 

  • El Paso Electric’s Renewable Energy Certificate Purchase Program

    El Paso Electric Company offers customers the chance to earn extra income from their solar panel system with their renewable energy certificate purchase program. The company will pay $0.02 per kilowatt-hour of electricity that your system generates and that means more cash in your pocket. 

  • Property Tax Exemption

    While solar increases the value of your home, you won’t have to pay property taxes on that extra value in New Mexico. Because of this property tax exemption, homeowners can get the financial benefits of generating their own power without accruing a higher tax bill. 

  • New Mexico State Solar Tax Credit

    Possibly the best state solar incentive for New Mexico property is the state’s solar tax credit. Your state tax payments could be reduced by up to $6,000 or 10% off all your solar expenses (whichever is lower). The credit is available for residential, commercial and agricultural solar projects as well. 

  • Federal Solar Tax Credit

    With the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), homeowners can reduce the cost of their PV solar system by 26%. The credit only applies to systems purchased outright with cash or a solar loan.

"Solarize is the interface company used by the people who installed my solar panels and power system. Due to problems with equipment installed at my home, I had numerous contacts with both office and field reps from Solarize. They were always professional and courteous even on days when I wasn't. One major ongoing problem took over 4 months to resolve and the folks at Solarize were right there doing everything they could to help. Without them, I wouldn't have hair today! Thanks. Solarize!"
