Current Argus News: New Mexico clean energy plans already in place

On Monday, President Barack Obama announced the Clean Power Plan that states carbon pollution nationwide will have to be reduced by an average of 30 percent.

The plan would require different target reduction rates for each state, but New Mexico has already reduced its carbon emission by 8 percent since 2008.

The state has already made its own effort to integrate renewable energy with the state’s renewable portfolio standard.
