Project Focus: Schott Solar completes 1.1MW solar installation in New Mexico


Schott Solar PV, VE Group and Affordable Solar Group celebrated what is hailed as New Mexico’s largest solar installation at The Bell Group’s headquarters. The 1.1MW solar array was installed on the company’s parking structure in Albuquerque, New Mexico and stretches across five acres of parking area. It’s estimated that the project will produce over 1,600,000kWh of electricity annually.

“Schott Solar is committed to being part of a strong solar industry in Albuquerque and the United States and this project is a great example of creating jobs along the solar value chain – from the manufacture of solar panels to their installation on the Bell Group’s parking lot,” said Gerry Fine, president and CEO of Schott Solar PV. “Thanks to New Mexico’s commitment to renewable energy, SCHOTT is creating good local jobs and a clean energy product that feeds back into Albuquerque to support the city’s economy and environment.”
