The 2019 ICMA Annual Conference made clear that local governments are recognizing the power of solar energy, giving awards to numerous SolSmart designees for their achievements. That included Albuquerque, New Mexico, which received an award for the city’s work on solar rights.

Renewable energy is the future for everyone in Albuquerque...The City is becoming a national leader in solar and is encouraging a greater solar market.
