Senate Bill #489: Energy Transition Act 

On Friday March 22nd 2019 at a ceremony in the Roundhouse, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed it into law! The bill passed both the House (43-22) and the Senate (32-9)

Here is a link to the story in the Journal, and this to the story in the SF New Mexican.
The ETA was celebrated in the national press as well, as New Mexico is only the third state in the nation to commit to 100% clean energy, and our standards are arguably the strongest.
New Mexico is now committed to a 100% clean energy future by 2045, with 50% by 2030, 80% by 2040. And it provides a just transition for the Farmington community as the coal-fired San Juan Generating station is closed.
