Why was RETA created?
When it was created, the New Mexico legislature gave RETA powers of eminent domain to acquire property or rights-of-way for public use if needed for RETA’s renewable energy projects.
RETA will always consider the use of eminent domain as a last resort, but these powers are essential to its mission and without it, there would not be the certainty necessary to construct these projects. As such RETA has taken steps to ensure that the rights of individual property owners are appropriately balanced with the needs of the public-at-large as it works to develop New Mexico’s renewable energy resources.
