Read about the Supreme Court's Decision and our Final Brief in the Case
New Mexico has an unprecedented opportunity to significantly shift its energy portfolio from fossil fuel and other extractive energy sources to clean, affordable renewables. As result of years of legal activism and political organizing by New Energy Economy and our allies and pressure by the Environmental Protection Agency, PNM was forced to agree to retire Units 2 & 3 at the San Juan coal plant and install pollution controls on Units 1 & 4, in order to bring them into compliance with Clean Air Act Regional Haze Requirements. Unfortunately, PNM is proposing a plan to replace the energy capacity from the retired units by bringing more coal, nuclear, and natural gas into its mix, for a total cost to ratepayers of approximately 66 million dollars a year starting in 2018, (not including any expenses for forthcoming carbon or coal ash regulations, or fuel cost increases).
