There is new life in a previously vacant building in Downtown Las Cruces.
Positive Energy Solar has hung its sign at 510 S. Main St., next to the Wells Fargo Tower.
“We’re excited to be part of revitalizing Downtown Las Cruces,” said Positive Energy CEO Regina Wheeler.
Positive Energy Solar opened its doors in Las Cruces in 2007 when local founder, Mark Westbrock, started operating the company out of his home. Westbrock, a North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners solar installer and licensed journeyman electrician, sold, designed and installed the systems with his business partners, also NABCEP-certified installers.
By 2009, Positive Energy had hired more certified installers, a designer and an office manager to meet the growing demand for solar and moved to a warehouse office space at 2050 W. Hadley Ave.
“More and more people are realizing that they can eliminate their electric bill and make a great investment with solar,” Westbrock said.
Once again, Positive Energy has outgrown its office, having hired more local professionals to meet demand.
“Our customers are delighted and our employees are excited to be providing the highest quality, best value installations in Las Cruces.” Westbrock said.
The new office at 510 S. Main St. will have a showroom, warehouse and office space.
“We look forward to hosting everyone in Las Cruces at our grand opening in October,” Wheeler said. “We invite everyone to come and see the remodeled building, meet the Positive Energy Solar team and enjoy food and refreshments.”
