ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A solar panel company is coming to New Mexico hoping to help people take advantage of the state’s sunshine. Solar City, Chaired by entrepreneur Elon Musk is now opening their first operations center in Albuquerque.

Unlike other solar companies, homeowners can finance their systems over thirty years and don’t have to come up with the money for the equipment right away. That upfront cost has discouraged a lot of homeowners from going green.

The California-based company says New Mexico has the potential to be one of the best markets in the nation. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
