Albuquerque is bordered on the east by Sandia Mountain, which rises 1 mile above the city. The antenna farm at Sandia Crest relays radio, TV, telecom, and other signals for the city and elsewhere around of the state.
High Tech Sunflower
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.
