Proposed Antonito S.E. Solar Energy Zone: Colorado

Sunday, December 12, 2010

Colorado is already known nationally and around the world as a clean energy leader, and the state’s many days of strong, high-elevation sun will provide fuel for much more renewable energy to come. In particular, the proposed Antonito Southeast Solar Energy Zone (SEZ), 29 miles south of Alamosa and near the New Mexico border, stands out as an exceptional area for solar development, and based on available data, could be developed with minimal environmental conflicts.
