SANTA FE, N.M. – On Wednesday, July 5, 2017, U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) will be in Santa Fe to highlight New Mexico’s growing clean energy economy and deliver remarks at the Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce.

In the morning at 10:30 a.m. MT, Senator Heinrich will help 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. 

In the afternoon at 12 p.m. MT, Senator Heinrich will speak at the Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce's Green Lunch. He will discuss the importance of diversifying the local economy, including growing the clean energy sector and supporting public lands and the outdoor recreation economy.
