To join the official waitlist, residents will need to add their name, email address and utility provider. This will give them access to be first in line for enrollment on the shared solar farms, offering the opportunity to save up to 30% on their electric bills while contributing to a more sustainable future. Solstice will give enrollment priority to waitlisted customers, pending eligibility, for the first 48 hours after enrollment begins, allowing them to reserve their spot on the farms before outreach begins. Enrollment is estimated to open in full on or before Spring 2024.
Solstice is proud to be working alongside local New Mexican leaders and organizations to commence educational campaigns that emphasize the distinction between community solar and rooftop solar. Community solar allows residents to access the benefits of solar energy without installing panels on their rooftops — eliminating the need for homeownership, credit checks and upfront financial investments.
“In my first six months at the Santa Fe Green Chamber, we helped to introduce a community solar bill in the New Mexico Legislature,” said Glenn Schiffbauer, executive director for the Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce. “That was 10 years ago, so to see community solar finally coming to reality here is incredibly gratifying and I am anxiously awaiting to see the first project that will serve citizens who never thought they could access clean, renewable energy.”
I understand, and expect, the fits and starts of something that is new here. That said, Green Chamber is thrilled to be partnering with Solstice who is already creating a success record here as they have done elsewhere.”
