Albuquerque’s Mayor, Tim Keller, and City Councilor Pat Davis, have announced a new energy initiative which will integrate solar panels on existing Albuquerque government facilities. The City of Albuquerque solar plan was announced in a press conference on Monday, June 25th, at the Alamosa Community Center.
The projects, funded by Clean Renewable Energy Bonds will allow the City of Albuquerque access to money and no interest terms for the $25 million investment in renewable energy.
“I want to get our city’s electric bill to zero,” Keller said during the press conference, adding that the money saved could go toward improving other facets of the local government. (Biz Journals)
With the first phase of solar projects expected to begin soon, the City of Albuquerque will be well on its way to achieving energy independence by reducing the electric costs for government facilities and thus, lowering the cost to citizens for the community facilities.
Sol Luna Solar has contracted with the City of Albuquerque to install some of the solar projects in the first phase of the solar initiative. Additional projects will be added in the coming weeks.
“Our team is looking forward to working with the City of Albuquerque to help the community lower its carbon footprint. We are eager to showcase our robust capabilities, by putting our experience installers to work on these important solar projects,” Marketing Manager, Megan Johnson said.
