El Paso:
A Great Place for Solar Energy

Solar energy is the generation of electricity from sunlight. Look on the roof of the El Paso Electric Kalahari Research Station for a series of solar panels. Energy generated by these panels is returned to the electric grid in El Paso. Click here to learn more about energy generated at the Research Station.

Everyone knows that we have plenty of sunshine in the "Sun City", but few people use solar panels to generate this promising form of clean and renewable energy. The good news is that new businesses have begun specializing in helping people to install solar panels on their homes.

Renewable energy is a very important part of our clean energy future and the Zoo in cooperation with El Paso Electric encourages you to take the first step by talking with a solar energy expert.
