The Energy Transition Act
The Energy Transition Act (ETA) is a keystone piece of climate and just transition legislation that was passed into law in 2019. Thanks to this policy, New Mexico has adopted a transformative clean energy standard calling for New Mexico to be 100% carbon neutral by 2045. The ETA will save rate-payers money, improve our environment and provide important economic relief to communities impacted by coal plant closures. It also establishes a pathway for an energy transition in the Four Corners area by providing $40 million in relief to workers, local communities and tribes in San Juan County, where the state’s remaining coal-fired facilities are located.
The ETA is working exactly as it is supposed to. Read about the Myths and Facts of the ETA.
