Description

The Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) spurs investment in renewable energy by requiring 20% of electricity to be produced from renewable energy sources by 2020, with incremental benchmarks along the way. HB546 would have slashed the RPS in half—hindering the diversification of New Mexico’s energy portfolio and stifling new job creation.

Outcome

HB546 died in the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
