CleanChoice Energy Expands Solar Development into New Mexico
New partnership between CleanChoice Energy and BOW Renewables to Develop Community Solar
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. , April 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — CleanChoice Energy, a cleantech company that empowers people and businesses to access climate solutions through retail clean energy, community solar, and solar farm development, is expanding their solar development work to New Mexico. CleanChoice is partnering with BOW Renewables, a solar developer and renewable energy consultant, to develop community solar projects for the New Mexico market. CleanChoice and Bow have an established pipeline of projects in the state.
New Mexico became the 21st state in the country to enact a community solar policy last spring. Community solar brings environmental and financial benefits to New Mexico residents by providing discounted energy and eliminating the primary barriers to rooftop solar, including upfront costs, installation obstacles, property ownership, or simply having a suitable roof. Community solar projects create opportunities for landowners by putting underutilized land to work and providing additional leasing revenue.
“Community solar is a fantastic new program for New Mexico residents and landowners. It can help residents lower their energy bills, expand clean energy, and create jobs. We’re thrilled to be working with BOW Renewables to help launch New Mexico’s community solar program. Solar development offers a fantastic opportunity for New Mexican landowners to generate revenue by utilizing depleted portions of their land for solar farms,” said Tom Matzzie, CEO of CleanChoice Energy. “Our mission is to make the benefits of clean energy available to everyone–and community solar is a major part of achieving that goal.”
New Mexico has one of the highest solar energy potentials in the country–ranking in the top three according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Community solar allows all New Mexicans to benefit from the state’s abundant solar resources.
