Veto destroys chance for N.M. solar energy

-A A +A

Citizens group, Got Sol, with $185,000 of bipartisan support from 27 legislators, proposed to design and construct a solar system for the state’s Government Complex buildings. The funding provides immediate start-up costs to construct a solar system to provide electricity for the Roundhouse, the heart of the Government Complex.
This shovel-ready project can offset 20 percent, or more of the roughly $60,000 it costs to power the Capitol Complex a month. We, the taxpayers, are responsible for that electric bill month after month. This cost-saving measure will pay for itself in three to six years reducing that charge for taxpayers.
Got Sol emerged from the 2012 New Mexico Climate Masters class in Santa Fe. The group agreed to donate 30 volunteer hours to educate New Mexicans about alternative energy and provide solar leadership.
