The Urgency of Now: A Path to Justice A Pledge Toward 100% Renewable Energy for New Mexico

OUR MOVEMENT IS PUSHING FOR 100% RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY BY 2035 FOLKS ARE ADDING THEIR VOICES TO AND HEADING THE CALL 

 

New Energy Economy published a 25-page technical report illustrating the pathway to 100% renewable electricity in NM by 2035. The plan would set our state on track to lead the nation with a renewable energy economy that is more dynamic, equitable, sustainable, and resilient than what has existed in NM for decades. 

Rather than energy derived from coal, nuclear and natural gas to serve the 500,000 customers in PNM's service territory, NEE’s plan would transition the state to 700 megawatts of solar power and 1750 megawatts of wind power by 2035, leveraging the state’s 2nd in the nation ranking for solar potential, and 12th in the nation for wind potential.

I am a founding member of the 100% Renewable Energy for New Mexico campaign and pledge my political support only to candidates who commit to transitioning New Mexico’s electric sector to 100% renewables by 2035.

As a central value of this shift, I call on all candidates for elected office to fight for a “just transition” by protecting extractive industry workers with healthcare and job retraining, requiring comprehensive clean-up of the toxic contaminants left in our soil and water, ensuring that consumers don’t pay for utility monopolies’ poor financial planning, utilizing existing transmission capability for renewable energy installation, and ensuring 100% renewable replacement power.

I look forward to supporting your candidacy with my vote, advocacy, and financial resources once you have publicly committed to 100% Renewables and a Just Transition for New Mexico.

Thank you in advance for embracing our state’s heritage and natural endowment, for embracing a forward-looking vision for our economy, and ensuring a sustainable future for our children.
