Community Solar: The SOLution for New Mexico
For too long, only rooftop solar has been widely available in New Mexico, leaving many out of the clean energy transition. Vote Solar worked with a diverse coalition including Indigenous leaders to pass community solar legislation that will move New Mexico one major step further on an equitable energy future for all, and remove barriers to energy sovereignty for Tribes and Pueblos.
WATCH: Picuris Pueblo’s Community Solar Story
Picuris Pueblo is one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States. Today, on their ancestral land in the mountains of northern New Mexico, the people of Picuris are putting community solar to work, lowering electricity bills for every family in the tribe, all while increasing community resilience and collectively combatting climate change.
