PNM’s replacement power plan is a clear point in one of the most critical conversations we’re faced with as a state today – how do we power our homes and lives in a way that doesn’t irreparably hurt our air, land, water? Our families?
When half of PNM’s aging coal-fired San Juan Generating Station closes down in 2017 to comply with air quality laws, PNM plans to reinvest in dirty coal and nuclear energy. PNM’s replacement plans fail to protect your wallet and health, now or in the future. By supporting PNM’s plans thus far, the Public Regulation Commission (PRC), with the exception of Commissioner Valerie Espinoza, has shirked its responsibility to do what makes the most sense for all New Mexicans in the long-term by planning for New Mexico’s clean energy economy now – when it can benefit our families and communities most.
With your help, CVNM and our sister organization CVNM Education Fund are elevating the voices of the families most impacted by PNM’s dirty energy plan. Together, we’ve gathered 7,400 petition signatures opposing PNM’s plans, and sent 2,327 messages directly to the PRC Commissioners’ inboxes urging them to vote down PNM’s plans and push for the transition to clean, renewable energy like wind and solar. Haven’t made your voice heard yet? Sign the petition.>>
PNM’s newest plan not only squanders the opportunity closing half of San Juan Generating Station presents to divest from dirty energy – it moves us backwards.
Thank you for following this important case about New Mexico’s clean energy future.
