A Professional Class experience from beginning to end!

I've had my system installed for two years now without need of any repairs, so far. My electrical bill has gone from an average of $100 per month to $8 per month, with my building a surplus of Kw hours each month. The installation process was as smooth and easy for a customer as one could hope for, with ASI handling all the applications and permitting necessary for the install. My personal experiences with Crystal(Sales), Annie(Project Mgr.), and Travis(Service Mgr.) from ASI were very professional and above reproach. I can't say enough good things about these 3 employees of their company. I would highly recommend Affordable Solar to anyone for their renewable energy needs!

Latest bad review thumbs down

mshappee | Albuquerque, New Mexico | 10/16/2017

Dropped the ball

To start,, my project that was supposed to be complete in 3 to 4 months,,, it finally got finished in 9 months. From sales to project mangager to general manager the communication was horrible. The left hand didn't know what the right was doing. After the 9 months that it took to finish we had a big rainstorm and I woke up to 3 leaks in my roof and ceiling,,, after the repair there were no follow up calls to check on my account. Along with this there were no show's from their workers after making appointments and carelessly leaving my door wide open where my dog got out and I had to chase her a block from my house. This just sums up what I went through with this company.. Not a pleasant experience with this company.

Clear information on solar power

Amongst the cloud of confusing information as well as misinformation Lou Dotson of Affordable Solar of fresh air. Lou provided clear and concise information. He is not pushy salesman at all, he just provides good clear information on solar power. With this information you can make a clear decision whether solar is a good choice for you. I strongly suggest that you take the time to talk to Lou about solar power for your home.

Total Product and Professional Service

We experienced total product and professional service from Affordable Solar at start to finish and beyond! How can this be? Well, each person was totally available for my questions and concerns by returning my calls and emails in a quick turn around manner every time! Each person, the salesman, home assessor, the clerk who filed the utility agreement with PNM and submitted our permit package, the installers who were respectful of our roof and property, the electrician who was very careful and tidy with each connection and lastly, the very knowledgeable staff person who helped us file the State and Federal tax forms. The salesman and staff person who walked us through all of the steps from start to finish were available BEYOND the call of duty when we had tax filing questions months after being hooked up to the grid! We made our first loan payment on 05-01-2021, and Affordable Solar was just as helpful and responsive to help us in January months after everything was completed!

Great Energy Partner

Affordable Solar help me cover my entire roof in solar. They were flexible with my schedule, answered my concerns, and delivered and excellent system. Meetings, contracts, and PNM/city concerns were all smoothly addressed with as little on my shoulders as possible. The warranty, help with the tax paperwork, and install are all reasons I recommend them to family and friends.

Great service department

I reached out for a quote from Affordable Solar. Once Anna called me for a consultation, she explained that i was outside their service area. However, she still took the time to do some research and send me information on the type of equipment that i was looking. It's not everyday that a company will go out of their way for someone who is not a customer. I would definitely use Affordable Solar if i was in their service area

Great company to deal with.

The price was right, the engineering was very good (they combined my existing string inverter system with a micro-inverter system), the people were friendly and easy to deal with, and the complex installation was done quickly and painlessly. I highly recommend Affordable Solar!

We just completed installation of our solar project in February 2020, and it has been a dream come true every step of the way! I was initially skeptical that solar panels made sense for my home, but after doing my homework, and sitting down with the folks at Affordable Solar, it all made perfect sense. The process and costs are made totally transparent by the sales team in a clear, concise proposal the give you after assessing your historical electrical use. They can predict on that data how many panels and inverters your system and should be composed of, and exactly how long the installation will take. I was actually very pleased at how affordable our system was. Once we agreed to move forward, the assessment team came out, designed the panel placement, and ensure that our roof areas for panel placement were structurally sound. Affordable Solar does all the hard stuff (permitting, HOA approval, etc). The actual installation took half a day, and it was painless because the panels are on skids/sleds that simply sit on a flat roof with ballast blocks -- no invasive mounting into your actual roof. Once done, they arranged for all electric company inspections/certifications, which came quickly. To date, my system has actually performed better than was predicted, and my electric bill has completely vanished. My sales representative, Solve Maxwell, and my project lead Jonas Terwilliger, were absolutely AMAZING during every step of the project -- they make it happen smoothly, efficiently, and perfectly every step of the way. I am soooooooooo glad I elected to do this. I feel socially responsible, received a wonderful tax rebate, and am loving the fact that we are converting all this gorgeous New Mexico sunshine to energy. Thank you Affordable Solar for a job exceptionally WELL DONE! John Rolph

Affordable Solar - 5 Stars

My review of Affordable Solar is 5 stars! The process that Affordable Solar has in place made it very easy to get solar. Crystal Felice, my sales representative did an outstanding job of explaining solar, how Affordable Solar operates, and taking care of my account. I would recommend Crystal to anyone who is interested in solar. Kelsey McIntyre, my project manager also did an outstanding job of explaining time lines, who would come out and the what if situations. Kelsey was quick to call me back when I had questions and was overall very much on top of the project. I am very pleased with my solar experience and Affordable Solar. I have actively talk about my experience and the money saving aspects of solar to friends and family.
