As with every facet of our society, the solar energy industry has felt impacts from COVID-19. Earlier in the year, the novel coronavirus was responsible for slowdowns across the construction industry, including in the construction of solar farms. Residential, rooftop solar installations decreased as well, especially in locations where public health orders were more restrictive. Although the industry won’t reach the booming levels previously anticipated in 2020, interest in solar is rebounding among homeowners.
With more time at home due to shutdowns and rising energy costs, many homeowners are showing increased interest in going solar and are even accelerating their desired timelines for installation. The solar industry is using creative approaches to help customers transition to solar energy.
In the past, the solar industry has relied largely on face-to-face interactions to show customers the benefits of the renewable industry source. Now, customers can speak with solar representatives via digital platforms such as Zoom, GoToMeeting, or Google Hangouts. It’s more convenient than ever to discuss solar.

Across the board, solar companies have already been using software, like Aurora, to design solar setups. Now, they can digitally share these files to help homeowners visualize what solar panels will look like in place. SolExergy designs turnkey systems with customers’ input that balance budget and quality. Because companies are saving on expenses by moving to digital sales, customers are experiencing record savings.
New Mexico Solar Tax Credits
Solar companies are offering unprecedented deals on installation and service. Thanks to federal and state tax credits, like those in New Mexico, solar can be more affordable than you might expect. However, amid COVID-19 prices are reaching rock-bottom. Understanding homeowners’ concerns about the economy, the solar energy industry has made it easier for customers to achieve installation at no up front cost to them, while enjoying the cost savings on their energy bills that solar power delivers.
In Europe, rooftop solar firms are also developing enticing plans for clients who are wary about spending amid the economic downturn. Two Spanish firms have developed unique solutions. SotySolar is rolling out a Netflix-style subscription model, while Holaluz is loading panels on homes with available space and farming out solar power to any interested party, even those without roof space.
