National Electric, Albuquerque, N.M., recently broke ground on a new state-of-the-art facility serving Santa Fe, N.M., and the northern New Mexico markets. The facility will showcase a variety of energy-efficient products such as the NICOR Aluminator fluorescent lighting package installed with occupancy sensors. In addition, the building will feature photovoltaic and wind turbine systems. Customers will also have access to training and be able to observe all of these new technologies in operation.

The new facility will have 8,000-square-foot high cubic capacity, allowing National Electric to expand its depth and breadth of inventory. The building houses two loading docks and offers a specially coded door that leads to a dedicated inventory room that allows customers to pick up material after hours.

“We have been expanding our efforts at National Electric to meet the growing needs of our customers and the new demands in the marketplace,” said Rocklan Lawrence, owner/CEO. “Our primary goal for this new facility was to provide a more central location with easy access for our customers so they can better serve their customers and project needs. With our expansion into the renewable energy products segment, our secondary goal was to provide a place where the industry can come learn and see these new technologies in action.”
