Amend Renewable Energy Portfolio Standards

CVNM Position:

Issue(s):
Legislative Info:
HB 546 on nmlegis.gov »

Description

The existing Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) spurs investment in renewable energy by requiring 20% of electricity to be produced from renewable energy sources by 2020, with incremental benchmarks along the way. HB 546 would have slashed the RPS in half—hindering the diversification of New Mexico’s energy portfolio and stifling new job creation in the rapidly growing ‘green jobs’ sector.

Outcome

HB 546 died in House Energy & Natural Resources Committee.
