NMSEA: Who we are...


The New Mexico Solar Energy Association (NMSEA) is an educational 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, dedicated to promoting solar energy and related sustainable practices.  NMSEA was one of the first organizations in the country, founded in 1972, to seek methods and ideas on how to use renewable energy, how small villages could live sustainably, and how to empower people through education about these issues.  We are currently an all-volunteer organization.  Our membership includes a diverse group of citizens including interested advocates of solar energy, architects, building contractors, engineers, educators, and planners specializing in renewable energy and sustainability.
