A brief description of the certified/verified sources of clean and renewable electricity:

About 5% of El Paso Eletric's power comes from solar PV and about half of NMSU's electricity comes from El Paso Electric.

A brief description of the on-site renewable electricity generating facilities/devices:

NMSU has a shaded parking area that doubles as a photovoltaic station that provides 1/3 of the power needed for our Campus Health Center where the solar panels are located. We also have the Southwest Technology Development Institute (http://www.nmsu.edu/~tdi/) that does research on PV panels for manufacturers around the world. The SWTDI is a non-profit, university-based organization that provides applied research and development services to private and public sector clients. SWTDI was established in 1977 as the New Mexico Solar Energy Institute, and has active research programs in energy and related systems.
