The New Mexico House passed the Energy Transition Act on Tuesday 43-22, and the bill is on its way to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D), who will sign it. In addition to the carbon-free electricity goal, New Mexico’s Energy Transition Act calls for 80 percent of electricity to come from renewable energy sources by 2040.
