Shining a Light on Progress
As New Mexicans who live and work here in the Land of Enchantment, we are committed to doing everyting we can to preserve our beautiful environment. Together, we can more our state foreward, powering progress that will make a difference for generations to come.
As the state's largest electricity provider, PNM serves more than 500,000 New Mexico residential and business customers in Greater Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Los Lunas and Belen, Santa Fe, Las Vegas, Alamogordo, Ruidoso, Silver City, Deming, Bayard, Lordsburg and Clayton. We also serve the New Mexico tribal communities of the Tesuque, Cochiti, Santo Domingo, San Felipe, Santa Ana, Sandia, Isleta and Laguna Pueblos.
Shining a light on the many steps we've taken together:
- We've supported hundreds of clean energy jobs by building solar centers, harnessing the wind for power and supporting our customers' efforts to concern energy and save money by installing their own private solar energy systems. Jobs were also created to add environmental equipment to reduce emissions and help preserve bird habitats.
- Through our $270 million investment in one million solar panels (and counting), we've helped New Mexico land in the top ten, nationally, for solar installations.
- Our 15 (and counting) solar centers in New Mexico produce enough energy when the sun is shining to power approximately 40,000 homes.
- We're generating enough wind power to support the energy needs of 73,000 homes.
- By combining the solar, wind and geothermal generation PNM has installed, we produce enough clean, green energy to pwoer more than 154,000 homes. These sources together will save 400 million gallons of water per year and reduce air emissions by the same amount as produced by 201,000 cars on New Mexico's roads.
- By working through the PNM Energy Efficieny program, we have reduced our power consumption equivalent to the energy consumed by 10,417 homes per year. Since 2007 our energy efficiency programs have reduced enough electricity to conserve more than 480 million gallons of water and prevent more than 900,000 metric tons of carbon emissions.
