PNM hosts 20th annual solar energy event

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – PNM held a special event Friday that showed kids the power of solar energy.

About 270 fifth grade students from pueblos all over New Mexico have spent months building solar cars.

They competed against one another Friday in the 20th annual PNM Solar Car Race.

PNM created this program because they say solar energy will play a crucial role in the way we use energy in the future. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
