Hatch Solar Energy Center I, LLC

El Paso Electric purchases 5 MW of electricity generated from solar power from The Hatch Solar Energy Center in Hatch, New Mexico. The Center, which began operation in July 2011, is owned and operated by NextEra Energy Resources. The Hatch Solar Energy Center uses concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) solar power systems, powered by Amonix. Amonix CPV systems convert sunlight directly into electricity by using optical concentrators to focus sunlight onto the world's most efficient multijunction solar cell. This technology uses dual-axis tracking to maximize energy production throughout the day. This facility provides enough energy to service  the electricity needs of 1,800 homes on an annual basis.
