Who Is Affordable Solar?

Started in the back of an Airstream trailer in 1998, Affordable Solar’s roots trace back to a passion for renewable energy, strong community and having fun. With $52 million in revenue and over 100 employees, Affordable Solar has outgrown the Airstream, but remains committed to the principles on which the company was founded.

Affordable Solar has installed over 2,000 solar systems in New Mexico and supplied more than 20,000 systems to commercial, industrial, scientific, community and residential customers in 96 countries. Our business model is built on a commitment to complement every solar system with our dedication to teamwork, integrity and outstanding customer service.


We remain committed to the idea that if it’s not fun, it’s work–and we prefer to have fun. We enjoy each other’s company and have a culture with a strong appreciation of adventure. A normal conversation at Affordable Solar easily ranges from solar, to mountain biking, to hiking, to sailing and back to solar. We love sunshine for work and sunshine for play.

Changes in the solar industry, rapid growth, diversification and expansion have not altered our dedication to the core principles that Affordable Solar was built upon. We have remained stable and credible for over 15 years and our reputation among our customers and business associates is a reflection of our consistency. We hold the value of relationships above everything else, built on our belief that working together as a community is essential to succeeding in business and bettering our society. We do what we say we are going to do, not just before the project, but for years after.

At Affordable Solar, we provide more than a solar system. We provide two decades of experience, an excellent reputation of performance, and the peace of mind that goes with them. See for yourself why New Mexicans prefer the fully certified, sun-loving team at Affordable Solar.
