Installing a reliable solar system requires expert knowledge of conventional energy systems and energy use in homes and businesses. Each renewable energy application will benefit our client, whether it is a solar electric or solar heating system. We follow and write standard installation practices and designs to reduce customization thus reducing cost of ownership.

As a charter member in the NABCEP Solar Thermal Task Committee,  and a technical committee member for the Uniform Solar Energy Code (international code by IAPMO), his expertise continues to help set national standards for the solar industry.  His legislative work within the State of New Mexico also has given him a keen perspective of energy policy overall.

Larry Mapes currently holds electrical, mechanical and general contracting licenses in New Mexico as well as other journeyman’s certifications for residential and commercial applications. He is a NABCEP certified solar thermal installer.
