The New Mexico Green Chamber of Commerce (NMGCC) announced that it has partnered with SunPower Corp. (NASDAQ: SPWRA, SPWRB) a manufacturer of high-efficiency solar cells, panels and systems, to offer rebates to all regular chamber members on purchases of new SunPower solar systems for their homes and businesses.
"Partnering with SunPower to offer these incentives makes it easy and affordable for members to purchase solar systems for their homes and businesses today," said Allan Oliver, CEO of the New Mexico Green Chamber of Commerce. "This exciting new program not only offers a significant savings to our members, but will help support jobs in the fast-growing clean-energy sector."
In addition to the discounts on high-efficiency SunPower solar systems, the company will offer free, comprehensive solar workshops, including information on available state and local financial incentives, via its authorized dealers, NMGCC members Positive Energy and Consolidated Solar Technologies. These workshops will be scheduled throughout the summer months in the Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Las Cruces areas.
"This is a great opportunity for members to install the most reliable solar panels available today at a reduced rate," said Jim Pape, president, SunPower residential and commercial business unit. "SunPower solar systems offer guaranteed performance, delivering both monthly financial savings and clean, renewable solar power for 25 years or more."
The program offers residential customers rebates up to $2,000 in addition to any federal and local incentives and up to $10,000 for commercial solar projects.
