Clean Energy Collective is tremendously thankful to Kit Carson Electric Cooperative for their vision and commitment to support and pursue innovative renewable energy solutions, particularly CEC’s community-based clean energy. Kit Carson Electric Cooperative has been a national leader in clean energy production, so it is not surprising that they have become a leader in community solar as well. KCEC is ranked second among cooperatives in the nation in solar usage per consumer and fourth in total solar production. Over ten years ago the Town of Taos was officially proclaimed "Solar Capital of the World" by former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson.
Kit Carson Electric Cooperative (KCEC) is a member owned Electric Distribution Cooperative. KCEC is one of 13 electric cooperatives that serve rural New Mexico communities, and one of 44 distribution cooperatives receiving power from Tri-State Generation and Transmission, of Denver, Colorado. KCEC serves over 29,497 members in Taos, Colfax and Rio Arriba Counties. Formed in 1944, KCEC is the second largest cooperative in the State of New Mexico.
Special thanks to Sol Luna Solar, our local solar specialist, who is constructing the Taos Charter School array, New Mexico's First Community Solar Array in Taos, New Mexico.
CEC extends its appreciation to the various individuals and organizations that share our passion and vision to create widespread use of clean energies to the benefit of our environment. The following organizations share this interest and have helped CEC make community-owned clean energy a reality.
