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



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


Renewables on the Rise
Download the report for some "light" reading! Hooray Environment New Mexico


Solar Decathlon 2017
The 2017 ASES conference is in conjunction with this DOE competition.


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



Proposed Standards Remove Climate Change Education
It's not enough that media information is being stifled, now our children will never know what hit them!


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!


About Wholesale Solar
Northern NM, near Taos sure encourages the solar business.


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!


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