Welcome back to the Giannini Politics Update. Today we will be discussing the passage of a renewable energy bill in New Mexico.
Recently the New Mexico House of Representatives passed The Energy Transition Act on March 11th, 2019, forwarding the carbon-free electricity bill to Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. The Governor has endorsed the ETA and has supported the share of renewable energy a multitude of times. Once signed, the legislature will ensure the state to attain zero-carbon electricity from public utilities by 2045. The bill also ensures temporary renewable energy targets of 50 percent by 2030 and 80 percent by 2040. California, as well as Washington D.C. and Hawaii have already committed to eradicate carbon emissions from their grids.
