One can only wonder if our Governor or Legislative leaders are paying attention to coming trends. For example, the fact that major American investment banks and money men are refusing to finance any new coal fired power plants in America. The New York Times had a story on this today. I would advise our hapless executive leaders in Santa Fe including the Public Regulation Commission to start thinking about the ramifications for New Mexico. And yet the subsidies continue for this dying fossil fuel industry while solar energy tax credits are non existent in arguably the sunniest state in the nation.
Perhaps our leaders might take a hint from this new graphic from the Solar Energy Industry Association. Does this ring some alarms on putting investment towards renewables rather than fossil fuels?
