New Mexico is not the most populated state. In fact, there are only two million residents. Compare that to a city like San Francisco (population roughly 900,000) and that’s a whole lotta room for some mind-blowing landscapes ranging from rose-colored deserts to snow-capped mountains. NM is, without a doubt, one of our most beautiful states.
New Mexico earned the name “The Land of Enchantment” due to its breathtaking sunsets and the local diversity - home to Native American, Hispanic, Latino and Anglo cultures. Tourists visit by the thousands every year to soak in the traditions and customs that have been passed down from generation to generation.1
Solar Panels Just Make Sense in New Mexico with Sunrun™
During the summer, daytime temperatures can often exceed one hundred degrees in New Mexico. The highest temperature recorded was 122 °F in 1994, not so very long ago.2 That is a “whole lotta” energy being used for air conditioning. Recent reports from Energy.gov find that our grids can’t keep up with energy demands like this in so many cities that run hot.3
Suffice to say, this state has the potential to go NM solar in a big way – and create savings – by using the incredible power from the sun. Sunrun wants to connect New Mexico to these long term savings and protection from rising utility prices by going solar. Savings that could amount to $20,000 over the life of a system.4
Government Incentives for Solar in New Mexico: Lower Utility Bills & More Jobs
New Mexico has one of the most generous energy metering laws in the country and covers all systems up to 80 megawatts.5 All residential homeowners with solar systems fall very easily into this bracket.
The state gets a good grade from Solar Power Rocks for its solar efforts.6 And bipartisan efforts are underway in the state House and Senate to reissue a solar tax credit that expired in 2016. This tax credit helped create solar investments and jobs. It was popular, and they are determined to get it back.7
