While the residents of the county have consistently shown support for environmental sustainability and conservation, the county council seems determined to ignore these opinions.
In 2009, the state of New Mexico passed bills allowing the creation of “Property Assessed Clean Energy” (PACE) programs that provide 100 percent, 20-year funding for environmental improvements, particularly supporting photovoltaic (PV) electrical generation panels. PACE loans differ from conventional loans in that repayment is through increased property taxes for the improved property. The loan stays with the property not with the individual, which removes risk for both the homeowner and the lender.
The council could not even bring themselves to implement a 90-day study of the benefits of such a program when faced with a very modest proposal in early February.
