WHAT: An ribbon-cutting celebration to reveal the newly constructed 1MW solar array that will serve upwards of 2000 Kit Carson members residing in the Moreno Valley and surrounding areas. The structure—featuring more than 4000 panels and overlooking Eagle Nest Lake—was constructed during a three-month period via a partnership involving Kit Carson Electric Cooperative (KCEC), Guzman Energy, Parasol Solar and Syncarpha Capital. The array begins testing in late-July in advance of an Aug. 13 commercial operation date. Executives from all four partners will be available to media. Via an exclusive partnership with Kit Carson Electric Cooperative, Guzman Energy is working to enable the northern New Mexico counties of Taos, Colfax and Rio Arriba to achieve summer-solar energy independence by 2022.
