TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Grant Funding for New Mexico Rural Businesses and Agricultural Producers
There are many challenges facing rural communities and agriculture producers, and we plan to help those communities across the State of New Mexico by providing technical assistance to apply for the USDA Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) Grant allowing them the opportunity to receive 50% project funding, use less energy, produce less waste, and produce their own energy through energy efficiency, biofuel, and renewable energy technologies. The end goal being for our clients to reduce their operational costs and save money. We provide all services below free of charge through the USDA Technical Assistance Grant (TAG) program by helping clients identify the most cost-effective projects and apply for funding opportunities.

Reduce Your Energy Usage and Save Money
Interested in installing renewable energy and energy efficient products? Implementing an effective Energy Management System (EnMS) is a crucial first step when considering the question above and may lead to energy savings without the installation of new equipment. We are a ENERGY STAR and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) 50001 ReadyTM Program partner helping lead businesses and organizations to improve their competitiveness and reduce operational costs. We utilize ENERGY STAR along with ASHRAHE energy assessments to help you design and implement your EnMS that closely tracks energy use, prioritizes energy efficiency opportunities, and helps to continually improve energy performance. ENERGY STAR and 50001 ReadyTM is a way to kickstart and build a leading-class EnMS.

MICROGRID DESIGN AND ASSESSMENT
Energy Independence and Grid Resiliency
Every energy evaluation is viewed as a microgrid. The utility grid is simply another energy source along with solar, storage, genset and any other available power generating resource. Energy conservation can also be considered an energy resource. Negawatt-hours (1) is energy unused through the deployment of energy efficiency strategies. We pair HOMERTM and HelioscopeTM to perform design and optimization services. Every opportunity is on the table to reduce your carbon footprint and energy bill.
(1) Negawatt-hour coined by Amory Lovins, 1985
Equitable Solar With Cost Savings at Economies of Scale
Less than 50% of businesses and residences can install solar PV systems to generate power due to limitations through ownership rental agreements or geolocation restrictions like rooftop shading. Community solar systems are typically sized to benefit from economy of scale pricing. We will work with your community, county, and state regulators to develop win-win-win scenarios for the individual, the community, and the environment.
Optimization of Renewable Energy Systems
There is a wide variety of clean energy technologies available for differing industries and locales. Wind energy is most efficient in utility scale projects, but there are some locations where small scale wind power can be a viable option. Hydrogen has the potential to solve problems that renewable energy alone can’t. Industrial processes like steel manufacturing, cement production and chemical manufacturing like ammonia synthesis are all carbon intensive processes. Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations are a great way to compliment solar PV carports and to attracted customers and employees with EVs. We can analyze your location utilizing industry proven models to determine emplacement feasibility.
We never sell your information, period.
