New Mexico Governor Grisham signs law requiring 100 percent renewable energy by 2045

March 25, 2019, by Renewable Energy World Editors

On Friday, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed the state’s groundbreaking Energy Transition Act (ETA) into law, meaning that by 2045, the state should be fully powered by clean, carbon-free electricity.

The ETA instructs New Mexico utilities to get at least 50 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2030, 80 percent by 2040, and 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2045. Following Hawaii and California, New Mexico is the third state with a 100 percent clean electricity law on the books.

Rob Sargent, senior director of Environment America’s Clean Energy program, said that by passing the ETA, New Mexico is “setting a prime example for how states can take the mantle of leadership.”

He added: “As sea levels and global temperatures rise higher and higher, so does Americans’ desire to address climate change as quickly as possible. Given inaction at the federal level, states are primed to lead the transition from fossil fuels to 100 percent renewable energy.
