US Senator Heinrich on Energy:
New Mexico, with its abundant wind and solar resources, can and should be America’s epicenter of the clean energy economy. As a member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, I will continue to work every day to ensure this becomes a reality.
As an engineer, I know that in order to reverse the devastating effects of climate change, our country must continue to invest in clean energy production, energy efficiency, and reduce carbon pollution. I support implementing energy efficiency initiatives to help our country do more with the power we have. New Mexico is well positioned to lead this effort.
Transitioning to clean energy sources and making America energy independent will not only create jobs, but help reduce our dependence on foreign oil and strengthen our national security. ”
