New Mexico regulators Tuesday approved a major expansion of the state’s solar energy program, including provisions for solar installations on Albuquerque businesses.
“We’re going to see a flowering of solar in this state,” said Jason Marks, a member of the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission. Under the program, residents and businesses are encouraged to put solar panels on theirroofs, generating electricity that they can use or put back onto the electric grid for use by others.
