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.
How do I share my views with RETA?
What are the benefits to landowners?
In addition to monetary compensation, these projects enable the landowner to become part of a team, working to make a large, positive impact on your community and state as a whole.
What is RETA?
How can they help me develop my renewable energy project?
How does RETA work with businesses?
How do they get their funding?
RETA derives its funding from developers based upon services provided by RETA. RETA has demonstrated that it is an effective partner in public-private partnerships.
How can RETA help me work with landowners?
What types of resources can RETA offer me?
Does RETA help provide renewable energy outside New Mexico?
Who do I contact to answer questions about related topics?
Are there existing transmission lines or proposed lines that can serve my utility?
How much renewable energy is available in New Mexico?
Does RETA have experience in working with transmission developers?
How does NM renewable energy compare to neighboring states?
Why should I choose New Mexico as my source for energy?
