Q CELLS Solar Panels
Q CELLS solar panels are a top performer for maximum power with enduring high performance. Q CELLS proprietary Anti PID technology prevents annual degradation performance on their panels. Additionally, the nano-coating on their panels act as a mirror, reflecting more sun ray into the system, that would otherwise be wasted.
With over a million hours of testing, this microinverter is sure to provide your system with reliable power and efficiency. Enphase uses Burst Mode™ technology to ensure that your solar system captures energy in low light conditions. Plus, it uses the same low-voltage of power that your house uses, making it safe for your home.
Another award-winning product, Solaredge Inverters, won the 2016 Intersolar and 2018 Edison Awards due to their advanced high-definition wave technology. They offer energy efficiency at the top of their class, and they’re extremely small, too. With built-in module-level monitoring, these are the best solar inverters on the market.
These optimizers also offer increased efficiency compared to the competition. They offer up to 25% more energy than comparable optimizers due to their advanced design.
A local company, Unirac, is a leading solar racking company in the U.S. and is headquartered right here in Albuquerque. Their racking system makes it easy to take on all types of solar panel installations:
There are a variety of solar panel incentives out there to help make installation more affordable. With so much sunshine in our beautiful state, these programs help you convert your old utility systems to a green one that also helps boost the value of your home and property.
As your solar system generates power, you deserve to get credit for it. New Mexico has a net metering way to store the energy your system produces on the grid for you to use later on. If you use more energy than your system produces on a given billing period, then you will be charged for the energy. Conversely, if you don’t use all the energy your system produced in that billing month, then you will have energy credits for the next month to use.
No one likes paying taxes, so get a tax credit by going solar! If your home is certified sustainable by the U.S. Green Building Council, you could receive a tax credit of up to $6.50 for every square foot of your home. Remember, solar doesn’t just help you go green; it helps you save green, too!
Energy use is always a concern. That’s why the state and federal governments want to encourage homeowners to switch to solar power. If you’re unsure if it’s right for you, these extra incentives may help convert you.
Yes, solar panels can increase the value of your home. However, some homeowners are wary of paying increased property taxes due to their home’s new value. Luckily, the state government has exempted property value increases due to solar panel installation from property taxes. You get the best of both worlds: a home that can sell for more without the tax bill to match.
Homeowners going solar in New Mexico will benefit from the $0 state sales tax. That’s right; when a homeowner decides to go solar, they will not be charged sales tax for solar systems that provide space heat, hot water, or electricity to your home.
Property owners should take advantage of the New Mexico state solar tax credit. It applies to agricultural, commercial, and residential installations and can reduce your state tax payment by whichever is lower of 10% of your total solar energy expenses or up to $6,000.
The federal government also wants homeowners to convert to solar energy. If you purchase your solar energy system outright or through a loan, you will receive a 26% tax credit from the U.S. government in the next tax season. The 26% federal tax credit is applicable through 2022. Then in 2023, the tax credit will be reduced to 22% and 0% in 2024 and onward.
