Go Solar with YellowBird Solar
Las Cruces goes solar
New Mexico is #2 in the nation for solar energy, with the potential to provide an astronomical level of solar support to its businesses and homes. With 350 days of sunlight every year, it pays to be a Las Cruces citizen.
Recently, the city of Las Cruces showed its unwavering support for renewable energy, by planning to be completely reliant on wind and solar energy by 2050.
As Las Cruces citizens ourselves, we’re proud of this statement by our leaders, and hope to bring this sustainable dream to life.

Choosing solar panels for your home or business saves you money, it’s as simple as that. But just how much money are we talking?
Over the years, standard heating and electricity have continued to surge in price. Electricity bills have continued to increase, with no end to the price hike in sight. In 2005, the average annual retail price of electricity was about 8¢/kWh. Last year, it was over 13¢/kWh. And with each passing year, the price increase is higher in percentage and value, creating bigger price jumps for consumers across the board.
And in El Paso County alone, electricity price rates were at an all-time high, at a 20.25% rate increase in 2017.
With YellowBird Solar on your side, your electricity bill is drastically reduced by 46%. With an estimated solar rate of $0.072¢/kWh, your electricity rate is nearly half of the estimated utility rate of $0.133¢/kWh.
Over your YellowBird Solar panel’s 30 year lifetime, that 46% price decrease adds up.
In estimated lifetime savings, you’ll save over $40,000.
And don’t forget, the government rewards you for going solar.
With the Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC), you can claim 30% of your solar panels purchase and installation costs on your federal taxes, making for even more savings from solar.
On top of the ITC, many states offer state tax credits, property and sales tax exemptions, solar rebate payments, and more. Combining the affordable installation rates with the abundance of bonuses thanks to the government, going solar has never made more sense.
Solar Made Simple
Solar panel technology is a relatively new concept for many, so we feel it’s important to break down just how it works.
In the morning, the sun rises, thus generating free renewable energy. This renewable energy is absorbed into your solar panels, which then convert the sunlight into DC current. From there, the solar inverter will convert the DC electricity into AC. As they charge up, your system will generate large amounts of energy as the sun’s rays strengthen and shine.
By the afternoon, your YellowBird Solar panels will be working at top capacity, generating enough renewable energy to possibility keep you off the grid (if energy usage matches solar energy creation). With the electric panel distributing the required amount of electricity needed to power your home, you can sit back and let solar do the job. From there, your utility meter measures the electricity consumed and flows it back to the grid. And, any excess energy produced is credited back into the grid, which could potentially result in your electric company owing you.
After sunset, your solar energy is done working for the day. Any excess solar energy produced throughout the day can be used to generate electricity throughout the night, if batteries are set up. Since household activity is usually at a low during the later hours, your electricity use will be minimal.
