Bringing the City Council Presidency to the
Westside is one of the highlights of my service to
you as your District 5 Council Representative. I plan
to keep a firm eye and hand on ensuring
Albuquerque’s Westside receives
due consideration in decisions affecting planning,
funding, and fair and equal asset distributions. A
great example of Westside Council unity is seen in

property, just north of District 5 and accessible to
its neighborhoods.

Solar Public Awareness Campaign Aims to Educate Residents


The City’s Consumer Financial Protection Initiative is launching a public awareness campaign about unfair and deceptive solar panel marketing to Albuquerque homeowners. While going solar can be a win-win for saving money and protecting the environment, it’s important for residents to have all the details. “Thinking of Solar for Your Home?” provides information about the differences between a financed purchase, a leasing agreement, and a power purchase agreement. These agreements are not the same and some may put homeowners at risk of higher costs or disadvantageous contract provisions. Some companies market door-to-door and use high-pressure tactics to steer homeowners into agreements that are more advantageous for the company than the homeowner.
