The carbon pollution from more than three coal plants could be eliminated in New Mexico if wind power continues its recent growth trajectory, according to a new analysis by Environment New Mexico Research & Policy Center. The analysis comes just as Congress considers whether to renew tax credits critical to wind development.
American wind power already produced enough energy in 2013 to power 15 million homes. Continued, rapid development of wind energy would allow the renewable resource to supply 30 percent of the nation’s electricity by 2030, providing more than enough carbon reductions to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Clean Power Plan.
