Union of Concerned Scientists! Invites you....

Invites you to join us for a briefing to hear about a new analysis on expanding New Mexico’s commitment to renewable energy resources, and discuss what this transition could mean for Native American communities. New Mexico is approaching an energy crossroads as coalfired power plants retire. The state can generate widespread and enduring economic, health, and environmental benefits for its residents by committing to an economy powered primarily by renewable resources. A new analysis by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) explores the costs and benefits of the state using a policy tool, here modeled as increasing New Mexico’s renewable portfolio standard to 80 percent by 2040, to commit to a high-renewables future. The analysis considers the scale and scope of required resource development, and the resulting economic impacts. "
When: October 18, 2017, Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm, Where: Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, Chaco III - South Side, 2401 12th Street NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico
