Economic Benefit & Prosperity
Many of the renewable energy-rich areas in NM are in rural areas that have lost population due to lack of job opportunities. The combination of transmission projects and energy generation provides hundreds of construction jobs and many quality permanent jobs once the projects are operational.
The building of transmission lines enables a path to market renewable energy to in-state customers and regional customers and encourages the development of renewable energy generation in energy-rich areas in New Mexico that would otherwise not be able to reach customers.
Attract Tech Companies to New Mexico
Renewable energy is in demand; high-tech firms such as Facebook, Google & Netflix are requiring that renewable energy be part of the offering for relocation or expansion of their business. Our chances of attracting these companies grows as our renewable energy production grows.
