In 2021, New Mexico Gas Company completed the installation of solar panels at three facilities – our company headquarters in Albuquerque, the Metro Service Center in Albuquerque and the Santa Fe Service Center. We also have solar panels at our Carlsbad regional office.
On-site solar generation to displace grid electricity consumption will occur at 13 other NMGC office locations across the state in 2022. The program is expected to reduce the company’s electricity purchases by about two-thirds.
The solar installations were proposed in 2019 as part of a program to reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions from NMGC operations.
