The County Sustainability Office is here for you!  Sustainability isn't just good for the environment—it can also improve your quality of life! We're here to empower our community to live a cleaner, greener lifestyle.

The Santa Fe County Sustainability Office promotes and implements practices that increase resiliency and reduce harmful impacts on shared resources. We accomplish this by continually improving County operations and facilities, and by providing technical assistance to businesses, public agencies, and residents to ensure shared resources meet the needs of current and future generations. How can we help YOU?

Now is a great time to solarize your home, (or to encourage your landlord to do so). Solar electric and thermal systems are a cost-effective way to invest more securely. We can help you get started and find financial incentives. 26% federal tax credits are available through 2022, so go solar today.

Do you like recycling? Try composting! Good for your landfill; good for your watershed. Home composting can have an even bigger positive impact than recycling. Learn how to get started, and how we can help you.

Efficiency and reduction of use is the BEST step you can take in sustainability. Ask us how. Looking for a rebate? Click here for rebates on sustainability improvements.

First, reduce. Then recycle right. Aspirational recycling, which produces recycling contamination is of concern in Santa Fe County. Learn how to make your recycling effective and where to take your recyclables.

We all have to get around, but transportation is one of the main sources of carbon emissions. Learn about bicycle options, plug-in electric vehicles, public transportation, ride-sharing, and other clean, green transportation choices in Santa Fe County.
