Community Involvement




We're in your community.

We enjoy getting our feet on the ground with community partners and local nonprofits. From providing power for community events to identifying opportunities to donate from our community fund, or volunteering for Bosque clean-ups, you'll find Positive Energy Solar playing an active role in our community. Through the years we've had the opportunity to support local schools, sports teams, and get hands-on with numerous nonprofit partners. Community outreach is just one of several ways that we make it a point to generate positive energy near and far.

Dedicated to New Mexico's Future.

We work with dozens of non-profit organizations that are driven toward creating a more equitable and sustainable future. Through community outreach, legislative action, and grassroots activation, we have helped to create an industry that boosts our local economy, protects our landscape, air, and water, and is part of social and environmental betterment for all New Mexicans. Together, we can foster social equity and environmental well-being.

Positive Energy Solar in the community

Constructing a healthier future for all

We seek to identify ways to make solar more accessible to those who need it the most. Each year we find opportunities to donate to large-scale projects that provide solar energy to organizations and institutions that serve the greater needs of often marginalized community members. The solarization of Casa Milagro (our installers hard at work on this project pictured left) is an example of this. Casa Milagro is a Santa Fe homeless shelter serving community members who also suffer from mental illness. Our work on this installation came to fruition through community fundraising efforts led by Cornerstones Community Partnerships and New Energy Economy.

Such unifying of community partners demonstrates the community solidarity that we believe in at Positive Energy. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our community presence and bring the power of solar energy, and the power of collective action, together to make a positive impact in the lives of our friends and neighbors.

  • ASES SOLAR 2022: Energy Transition with Economic Justice

    For more than five decades, ASES has organized and delivered the National Solar Conference. What began as an idea to bring the industry’s brightest together to drive progress and re-imagine the energy economy of the future, continues today as a unique blending of science, business, policy, and industry. To continue our efforts at building a larger clean energy table with equity and inclusion in mind, we have committed to a JEDI sponsorship for American Solar Energy Society's National Solar Conference 2022. We are grateful for the opportunity to sponsor 5 low-to-middle-income community members and further the opportunity at education surrounding solar energy’s role in creating a more just and equitable future.
