SolarCity Groundbreaking, April 1, 2015

U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich helps kick-off the groundbreaking of the new SolarCity facility in Albuquerque. SolarCity recently announced its plan to expand to New Mexico and will make MyPower solar loans available to homeowners across the state. The company expects to hire 50 local employees. "SolarCity's decision to come to New Mexico is great news for our residents, our economy, and our environment. The solar industry employs more than 173,000 Americans and SolarCity's new office here in Albuquerque is helping to contribute to that growth. Unique opportunities like this allow homeowners here in Albuquerque and across the state to have more control over their electricity bills and create a viable option to choose cleaner energy for less," said Senator Heinrich.
