There is so much money in Santa Fe County it sometimes seems like a fantasy. The San Marcos feed store/restaurant/lumber yard is building this photovoltaic array to replace its reliance on the grid. Each panel generates 238W and the total system is expected to produce about 40kW. Arrays like this one are rapidly becoming ubiquitous in northern New Mexico.
Water catchment is another given as recharges are often unable to pace demand and the detection of elevated tritium in part of the Santa Fe water supply reminded residents about the value of their resources. Small businesses are frantic with retrofitting those properties without dependable water storage utilizing a gravel roof that is also resistant to wildfire: so is elastomeric stucco. Occasional heavy snows send residents or their hires above deck to shovel.
It's so refreshing being around builders who are safe rather than cheap and producing because it's the right thing to do instead of cutting corners to the cheapest fix.
