PNM (the electric utility here) has installed a small solar panel array on the property of an old (and decommissioned) gas-fired generating station about 15 minutes north of Albuquerque. The array has 22 of these panels. PNM calls each panel a sunflower. The array generates 25kw, enough to power about 5 average homes, or 12 newer low-energy-use homes.
