NMSEA Updates

Our Parent Organization
Solar Conference and DOE Solar Decathlon happen in Denver, in early October 2017. Be there!

Integrated Resource Planning - PNM
They are adding solar, dropping coal, but, unfortunately seem stuck on "flexible" gas! Storage, storage, storage.

Your Own Private Wind Turbine
A window to Sierra Club Magazine. Also, since NM is the 11th windiest state maybe some folks in the eastern part of our state will get the idea.

Ipai Solar
Coached by NMSEA president

100 Percent Renewable Grid Is Possible Now
so says Sempra VP which surprises some, but not NMSEA!

National Updates

EVs are on their way!
Part of the Volkswagen settlement. The Germans are helping us move to a more sustainable transportation sector.

Electric Drive Conversion as a Sustainable Development
Just as safe an investment for fleet managers as buying I-bonds!

Shedding a little light
Hooray for DuranGo! Keep RE moving and growing.

International Energy Statistics
Just the facts,just the facts on consumption.

Welcome to SAM
performance and financial model designed to facilitate decision making for people involved in the renewable energy industry

Oil depletion allowance
Percentage depletion makes it possible to write off more than the whole capital cost of the asset. It's as if doctors could be rewarded every time one of their patients kicked the bucket!

Utility Helps Wean Vermonters From the Electric Grid
I wonder if we could get PNM to become a B Corp?

U.S. Reports a Major Milestone in Wind and Solar Power
WHoo hoo! On a roll and not slowing down. NM needs to take FULL advantage of its solar and wind resources...NOW! Sell those clean electrons to California!

Fisticuffs Over the Route to a Clean-Energy Future
The first sentence says it all: Could the entire American ECONOMY run on renewable energy alone? How does money dictate what is necessary or possible? Nature could care less!

Tucson Electric signs solar + storage PPA
for 'less than 4.5¢/kWh.' How exciting and so encouraging. The RE industry will save us!

NM Updates

Albuquerque goes Renewables!
With new mayor Tim Keller at the helm, we can finally move forward with a forward thinking plan.

Los Lunas to use new solar technology at recycling center
With an eye to a manufacturing plant, also!

Water is one big issue in the Southwest!
Gas and oil companies only want to talk about the $$$...for them. They tout the economic benefit, but again it's only for a few. In truth, fracking causes more problems than its worth especially considering the water usage in the very dry climate we call home. Fracking in our backyard? Better be prepared or your water's at risk. Go Solar!

Sol Luna Solar
Awesome trustworthy folks.

Billion dollar data center from Facebook to be located in New Mexico - Albuquerque Business First
Because we're powering them with the sun and the wind...100% new generation in NM!
