New Mexico Governor Lobbies Against PPA Regulation

NEW MEXICO – This month the Governor of New Mexico announcedhis support for small solar energy developers in a Public Regulation Commission’s filing. The state’s Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department, on behalf of Governor Richardson, filed a legal brief with the PRC that provides a “detailed analysis” of why small solar energy developers should not be regulated in the same manner as large-scale investor-owned utilities. According to a statement from the governor’s office, the brief concludes such regulation would be an “incredible barrier” to the growth of the renewable energy sector in New Mexico if “third party producers” are subject to the cost and complexity of PRC regulation.
