Latinos bring their energy concerns to PNM’s front door
Juntos delivered more than 6,500 signed petitions urging for more clean energy solutions on Thursday, March 12th to PNM President Pat Vincent-Collowan. Over 50 Juntos members and volunteers marched the 6 blocks to PNM headquarters to make their voices heard.
Over last 6 months Juntos, along with other community based organizations have knocked on 5,800 doors and made 15,400 calls to garner support for a petition to present to the PNM President, Susana Martinez, and the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission (PRC). This petition delivery asked for PNM to drop their recent proposal to the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission to replace power from the San Juan Generating Station with more dirty energy from coal and nuclear sources. See photos and videos from today’s event on Juntos’ Facebook Page.
Opportunity to Speak Up about PNM’s Dirty Energy Plan
Tell the PRC what you think about PNM’s power plan yourself at their public hearings on PNM’s proposal for the future of San Juan Generating Station on Wednesday, March 18.
The PRC can approve, reject or adjust PNM’s plans for San Juan, so this is your opportunity to speak out. Please tell the commission to support solutions that would bring renewable-energy jobs and clean up our air and water. Here’s the details:
