Poulin Solar Pro

Solar Panel Installation in Albuquerque, NM

Our Solar Process

Deciding to move from traditional power to solar panels in Albuquerque is a significant change. Homeowners can be confident in Poulin Solar Pro’s installation process. Every project has the same process: consultation, design, and finally, installation. Each of these steps is carried out by our professional solar installation technicians, so nothing is left unchecked.


When the professionals from Poulin Solar Pro visit your property to evaluate it for solar panels in Albuquerque, they may ask to see the last year of electrical bills from your energy provider. If you don’t have it on hand or haven’t lived on the property long enough to have one, we can ask you a few questions to estimate your usage. After reviewing your home and its various systems, we’ll discuss the options with you.

At Poulin Solar Pro, we focus on getting you the best value for every dollar you spend on the system. The ideal setup brings you the best energy output for the available roof space. We’ll also cover warranty information with you, any incentives available, and the financing possibilities at the consultation. Ask all the questions you want; our highest priority is to make sure that you understand the benefits of going solar.


The design of your system must function well and produce energy, of course, but it also must stand up to the elements and follow all the regulations. The design team at Poulin Solar Pro knows how to achieve this without detracting from the beauty of your home. When the plan is complete, we’ll go over a copy of it with you so you understand what happens next. Once you’re satisfied with the design, we share the plan with your local electricity provider for their approval.


When all the preliminary work is done, the Poulin Solar Pro team is ready to install your system. After everything is in place, we test the system thoroughly. When we are satisfied that everything is working correctly, we arrange for the final inspections from local permitting authorities so that you can connect to the grid. The last step is providing you with all the monitoring tools you need to track each panel’s performance.

New Mexico Solar Tax Incentives & Credits

New Mexico is ideal for owning a home with solar panels. Abundant sunshine paired with generous financial incentives help you make the most of your system. Here are just a few of the available tax breaks you may be able to take advantage of when you make the switch.

  • Net metering: In New Mexico, the net metering policy gives you credit for the extra power your system generates. You can use those credits when your system doesn’t generate enough power to cover your needs. 
  • New Mexico Solar Market Development Tax Credit: Also known as the New Mexico Solar Tax Credit, this legislation was passed in 2020. It gives you a 10% tax credit of up to $6,000 for using a solar energy system on your home. To qualify, homeowners must buy and install a solar energy system on or after March 1, 2020. Take note that New Mexico sets aside $8 million annually for this solar tax credit, so you want to start your project as early in the year as possible so you don’t miss out.
  • Property and sales tax exemptions: Adding solar panels in Albuquerque increases your property value, which would lead to higher property taxes under normal circumstances. However, New Mexico exempts that added value to give you the value without the extra expense. The state also exempts solar panel installations from state sales taxes to save you money.

You may also benefit from federal tax breaks like the Federal Solar Tax Credit. Available to homeowners in every state, this tax break gives you a credit of 26% of the value of your system. When you purchase or finance your system, you claim this credit on your federal return. To claim your federal and state tax credits, file with your tax professional to ensure you receive them.
