Positive Energy Solar Workers

On July 5, 2017, U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich helped install solar panels on a home in Santa Fe with a team from SunPower by Positive Energy Solar, one of the highest-grossing solar and renewable energy companies in New Mexico. Senator Heinrich has been a leading advocate for growing the clean energy economy in New Mexico and modernizing the electric grid. His efforts to secure multi-year extensions of production and investment tax credits have spurred major growth in the clean energy industry in New Mexico. The tax credits have helped boost the solar industry, which has created nearly 3,000 jobs in New Mexico, including over 1,000 new jobs in 2016 alone.
