Ever since NMSEA’s founding in 1972, Educational Outreach has been a primary focus for our organization. For over 40 years, NMSEA has delivered workshops, seminars & classes all around New Mexico covering such topics as passive solar architecture, solar thermal & PV theory & installation, bio-fuels, greenhouse design & construction, and energy efficiency.

NMSEA members have written books, tutorials & lesson plans, magazine articles, and study guides about all sorts of Alternative Energy, Renewable Energy, and Sustainable Energy related topics.

We have included some of these educational resources on this web-site, and we’ve included a long list of RE Education Web Resources too. Use the quick-jumps on the left side of this page, and/or the category listings below to take advantage of this wealth of educational material.
