New Mexico Recovery Act State Memo

New Mexico has substantial natural resources, including oil, gas, solar, wind, geothermal, and hydroelectric power. The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is making a meaningful down payment on the nation’s energy and environmental future. The Recovery Act investments in New Mexico are supporting a broad range of clean energy projects, from energy efficiency and the smart grid to wind and solar, geothermal and hydro, biofuels and nuclear, as well as a major commitment to cleaning up the Cold War‐ legacy nuclear sites in the state. Through these investments, New Mexico’s businesses, universities, non‐profits, and local governments are creating quality jobs today and positioning New Mexico to play an important role in the new energy economy of the future.
