Solar Power Potential in Southeast New Mexico

Solar Power Project Opportunities Abound in the Region

The WIPP site is receives abundant solar energy with 6-7 kWh/sq meter power production potential

As the accompanying map of New Mexico shows, the WIPP site enjoys abundant year-round sunshine.  With an average solar power production potential of 6-7 kWh/sq meter per day, one exciting project being studied for location at WIPP is a 30-50 MW Solar Power Tower:

The American Solar Energy Society (ASES) is is a national trade association promoting solar energy as a clean source of electricity, and provides a comprehensive resource for additional information.

DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is also a comprehensive resource for more information on renewable energy.
