The Basics

Getting Started With Solar in Smith Lake

How Solar Works: When sunlight strikes the cells of a solar panel, it causes the electrons to flow, creating an electrical current. This energy is channeled into an inverter where it is converted from direct current (DC) power to alternating current (AC) power to provide energy to your home. As part of New Mexico, Smith Lake residents are ideal candidates for optimal solar energy absorption. When you choose to have a grid-tied solar system installed, you’ll receive a credit for the excess energy you produce, effectively reducing or eliminating your utility bill.

Your Solar, Your Way

Know Your Solar Options

There are the three primary types of solar systems:

Grid-Tied Solar System

Solar panels are installed and the energy generated is used to power your home or business. When no energy is generated, you get power from the grid. Excess energy produced by your solar panels is sent back to the grid and you get a credit.

Grid-Tied With Battery Back-Up

Solar panels are installed and the energy generated is used to power your home or business. When no energy is generated, you get power from your battery first, then if necessary, from the grid. Once your battery is full, you still send energy back to the grid and you get a credit.

Stand Alone (Off-Grid) Solar

[We currently do not offer Off-Grid solar installations]
Solar panels are installed and the energy generated is used to power your home or business. When no energy is generated, you get power from your battery. You are not tied to the grid and have complete energy independence.

Paying for Solar in Smith Lake NM

Maximizing Your ROI

Available to Smith Lake Homeowners Through 2032

30% Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) Extended!

The 30% Solar Investment Tax Credit has been extended through 2034! This means homeowners in Smith Lake NM can receive a 30% tax credit through 2032. Then in 2033 and 2034, it will go down to 26% and 22%, respectively, before going away in 2035. Commercial solar installations in Smith Lake can still benefit from a 30% credit through 2o24.

Keep in mind that a tax credit works differently than a tax deduction. A credit means you’ll be that your tax liability will be washed away on your taxes for the qualified amount. For example, if you pay $20,000 for a 6kW solar system in the current tax year, you’ll be credited $6,000 on your that year’s tax returns, bringing the cost of your unit down to $14,000 WHILE saving $6000 in taxes!

$0 Down Financing Options

In addition to paying cash, there are several financing options for solar in Smith Lake NM. The most popular options are home improvement loans or home equity loans. Many of these are available for little to no money down and still allow you to take advantage of the federal tax credit. And, unlike other home improvements, not only is the solar purchase itself tax exempt, the value added to your home is also exempt from any increase in property taxes in Smith Lake.

Invest Smart

Increase Your Home's Value

Solar panel installation provides Smith Lake residents and business owners with a relatively quick ROI by immediately reducing or eliminating your electric bill and adding tax-exempt value to your home or property. This is true even if you have a loan, as your monthly loan payment is typically less than your monthly electric bill. On average, the value added to your home is approximately 4.1%, according to a Zillow analysis conducted in 2019.

Understanding Net Metering

Reduce or Eliminate Your Electric Bill

How much money can you save with solar in Smith Lake? Typically your solar system will generate more power than you need. With a grid-tied solar system, whatever power isn’t used by you is sent back to the grid. You receive a “credit” from your utility company for providing them with power, essentially causing your meter – and your power bill – to run backwards, in a process known as “net metering.” This makes it possible to save money on your electric bill with solar or even to entirely eliminate it; and, as an added bonus, if you send out more power than you use, at the end of the year, residents of Smith Lake NM receive a check for the difference!

We'll Make It Easy!
