Most people may only know New Mexico for its heat and high mountain deserts. However, New Mexico is home to the owners of NM Solar Professionals, LLC whose owners are Elaine Silva Founder CFO and Albert Silva Co-Founder and CEO. Native to New Mexico, the Silvas have been providing Home and Business Back-up Power Systems in their community that can withstand the heat and high altitude of NM. The Silvas have integrated Home Standby Generators with Solar for secure affordable emergency power.
New Mexico Solar Professionals, LLC (NM Solar Pro) was established in New Mexico in 2016. This company is uniquely positioned in the energy Generation Market (solar design, installation, and integration of power generation through NG, LP, and other electric generation). This local family business integrated their generation projects and joined Cummins as a Power Generation Home and Small Business Dealer Network. With construction backgrounds holding a general contractor and electrical license provides a huge benefit to giving the customers the best installations possible.
Of course, from the company's name you might not assume that they sell Cummins Home and Small Business power generators. However, with the solar industry growing at record pace, it was a natural transition to consider similar low-cost NG/LP power systems that could help customers with everyday needs. A business move that has proven to be a success for the Silvas. What they’ve found is that most homeowners are unaware that a solar expert is needed to combine their existing solar system with their added power generator system; a crucial benefit that NM Solar Pros can complete.
With not many Dealers having the training, licensing, and background similar to the Silva’s in the New Mexico area, daily needs for back-up power are more frequent. One major reason, is the recent shut down of San Juan Generating Station, a local coal fire generation plant which the Silva’s have projected impacting roughly ~20% of the local electric market to go offline. Unfortunately, there is no indication from the local government to upgrade or build any new facilities to support, leaving a high need for a solution. NM Solar Pros wants to continue being a vital source of hope for the community.
For the Silva’s, this is a pivotal moment for them to install Cummins generators. In anticipation of what could be a 10-hour rolling electrical blackout on any given day, the Silva’s have begun working with the community on cost-effective investments with the Residential Quiet-Series Cummins 20kw Power Generators. They’ve estimated that customers spend about 50% less with and get 50% more power with a Cummins Home-Standby-Generator co compared to a back-up battery option.
The Silva’s say, the most joy comes from training the customer to use the systems and knowing that they have energy freedom that can sustain long and short-term outages through all seasons. Ensuring that customers know that they have a safe and affordable backup system for their home even if their local utility isn’t providing reassurance, gives them great pride.
NM Solar Pros has a bright future ahead, the company is growing month over month with the support of the community. In 2023, NM Solar Pros with Cummins is committed to help families secure power for their homes and businesses.
