New Mexico is fast approaching an energy crossroads. As cheaper, cleaner, and more efficient resources come online, utilities are closing coalfired power plants, long the state’s primary source of electricity. As New Mexico grapples with the inevitability of change, it can look away, hoping for the best, or it can actively chart a robust course to a bright, viable, and economically rewarding future. By committing itself to a high-renewables mix of energy resources, New Mexico has a powerful opportunity to choose a future that secures widespread benefits for all.

A visual of how each state makes electricity. Overall, fossil fuels still dominate electricity generation in the United States. But the shift from coal to natural gas has helped to lower carbon dioxide emissions and other pollution. Last year, coal was the main source of electricity generation for 18 states, down from 32 states in 2001.
