ISLETA PUEBLO, N.M. (KRQE) – The Isleta Pueblo is the first to commit to a renewable energy future.

Monday, they held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the tribal service complex solar array on the pueblo.

The $2 million project features dozens of solar panels that will power a wellness center.

Senator Tom Udall was at the event, and says the tribe is leading by example.

“This new center provides important community services. It also provides an important example and I applaud the Isleta Pueblo for your initiative in using solar energy to power this building,” Udall said. “This is something to celebrate and to encourage us and we need more projects like this.”

The Isleta Tribal Council also passed a resolution requiring all projects to consider renewable energy. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
