Array Technologies Expands Albuquerque, New Mexico, Operations
The investment will include a new 216,000-square-foot manufacturing campus at 701 Atrisco Vista Blvd. SW. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2024.
"Our foundation was laid in Albuquerque over 30 years ago and this expansion is a testament to our longstanding relationship with this vibrant community," Kevin Hostetler, Array CEO, said. "This move signifies more than just growth; it reaffirms our commitment to New Mexico, its people, and the global renewable energy mission we've passionately pursued since we opened. We're excited to continue lighting the way to a brighter, cleaner energy future from our home state."
The State has awarded Array $2.5 million in economic assistance from the Local Economic Development Act (LEDA) job-creation fund to assist the company with land, building, and infrastructure costs for the property. The funds will be awarded as Array meets specific economic development benchmarks.
“New Mexico is a leader in renewable and alternative energies and is building a robust ecosystem to support the manufacturers that supply that industry. Array’s continued investment in New Mexico is a welcome expansion of the renewable industries in our state,” noted Melinda Allen of the New Mexico Partnership.
The City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County are assisting with $250,000 each of additional LEDA funds, in addition to partial property-tax abatement through an Industrial Revenue Bond with Bernalillo County.
“Array has become a global manufacturer and supplier of solar tracking systems and renewable energy products. Headquartered here in greater Albuquerque, the long-term investments made by Array continue to build our region’s identity as a location of choice for high-quality production, technical, and engineering talent.” Danielle Casey, Albuquerque Regional Economic Alliance President and CEO, added.
Array is a global leader in utility-scale solar tracking solutions that maximize the efficiency of solar panels by moving them to optimize the sun’s angle.
