Customer Solar Energy Program
Solar Energy for Homes & Businesses
Our customer solar program is for grid-tied solar photovoltaic systems and solar thermal electric technologies. The maximum system size is 1 Megawatt (MW) AC. Solar water heaters and other solar heated equipment are not eligible for PNM incentives.
You benefit in two ways when you install and interconnect a qualified system to the PNM grid.
- Renewable energy certificate (REC) purchase: Because you are adding renewable-fueled power to the PNM system, we pay you for helping us meet our environmental goals.
- Net metering: Because your solar energy is producing energy, you only have to buy electricity from PNM when you have used more energy than your system produced in a given billing period.
