NMSEA Updates



NMSEA supports Environment Day
Board members and others helped make the day a great success for renewable energy which, BTW, is better than fossil fuel combustion for the environment. Period!


24-Hour Solar Energy
Molten Salt Makes It Possible, and Prices Are Falling Fast. How about it Four Corners region? Sell those clean electrons to California!


Solar-Estimate and referrals
We will need to monitor this site as many sites begin well, but quickly morph into subscriber installer only. Good as of Feb 21 2018


ASES - Our Parent Organization
Solar Conference August 2018 in Boulder Colorado.


Sol Luna Solar
Awesome trustworthy folks.


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


Energy Sector's Hiring Plans Challenged by Skills Shortage
Yikes! NM's having the same issues! ACE Leadership school in Albuquerque is working to actively engage future architects, construction workers, and engineers,


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.

National Updates



Solar Plus Batteries Beat Out Natural Gas In Two US Electricity Markets
Hooray! We should insist there be ZERO new gas plants.


MN Community Solar
Yes! Why not everywhere, especially NM!?


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


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!


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.


NM's solar industry shining brighter -2016
Just couldn't resist the shout out.


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!


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


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!
