Governor Susana Martinez Unveils New State Energy Plan -- New Mexico Governor's Office Press Release

Governor Susana Martinez unveiled a sweeping new energy policy and implementation plan for the State of New Mexico, entitled: “Seizing our Energy Potential: Creating a More Diverse Economy in New Mexico.” Among other things, the blueprint calls for an “all of the above” approach to energy development that promotes the production of all sources of energy as a means of creating jobs, diversifying a key sector of our economy, and supporting our nation's efforts to achieve energy independence.

“New Mexico is one of the most energy-rich and energy-diverse states in the nation, and we have an excellent opportunity to utilize this position to grow our economy and create more jobs,” said Governor Martinez. “Improving our energy infrastructure, responsibly developing and producing energy of all types, and better preparing our workforce for the needs of our energy sector are all critical components not only of a strong economic future, but of helping lead America to energy independence.”

New Mexico’s 2015 Energy Policy and Implementation Plan is the first comprehensive energy policy for the state in nearly 25 years. -- 9/14/2015
