EMCORE Corp. has signed an agreement with PNM of New Mexico to participate in PNM's large distributed generation (DG) solar power program. This 20-year agreement with EMCORE consists of 114 kW of solar power produced on-site at EMCORE's corporate headquarters in Albuquerque, N.M.
The power is generated by EMCORE's second- and third-generation concentrator photovoltaics systems installed next to its headquarters' facility in Albuquerque, N.M. The power is fed to EMCORE's buildings through a PNM-approved meter.
This site represents EMCORE's first DG application, the companies note.
