Array Technologies, Inc. announced the groundbreaking of a new $50+ million manufacturing campus in Bernalillo County, New Mexico. The facility marks a significant investment in the region's clean energy future and underscores Array's commitment to fostering job growth and bolstering the domestic supply chain. Array, one of New Mexico's few publicly traded companies, is a global leader in utility-scale solar tracking technology that maximize the efficiency of solar panels by moving them to optimize the sun's angle.

Founded in Albuquerque over 30 years ago, Array is the original American solar manufacturing success story. Array has led the way on sustainability through its use of a traceable American supply chain and low-carbon American steel. The decision to expand operations in Albuquerque comes as part of Array's long-standing relationship with the community.

The Inflation Reduction Act's production tax credit made this investment possible, which will bring new manufacturing careers to the community and boost American energy independence. The new 216,000-square-foot campus, located on Albuquerque's west side, will employ over 300 residents in the near term to facilitate the production, assembly, design, engineering, and customer service of solar tracking technology. In addition to the Inflation Reduction Act's tax credits, Array's expansion is also made possible in part by $2.5 million in economic assistance from the Local Economic Development Act (LEDA) job-creation fund, awarded by the state.

Additional support from the City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County includes $250,000 each of LEDA funds and partial property-tax abatement through an Industrial Revenue Bond. Between capital investments and job creation, the expansion project is expected to have an economic impact of more than $300 million over 10 years.
