New Mexico’s Public Service Company has installed greener energy generated through solar and wind power plants into its distribution system in order to meet the standards set by the feds for the state at 15 % for the year 2015.
PNM announced on New Year’s Eve that it would be installing about 60 turbines run by greener energy into the state’s distribution system in order to meet the greener energy production standards.
According to federal database New Mexico now has to increase its green energy productivity from 10 % to 15 % by the end of 2015.
The company is making progress in order to meet the aforementioned criteria especially with the help of the 102 Megawatt Red Mesa Wind Center.
The main aim of this new rule set by the U.S government is to diminish its dependence on fossil fuels and use less of them and rely more on environment friendly and ecological means of energy.
In addition to this, the renewable energy standards also imply diversity, meaning that the green energy should come from various solar or wind or any other generating units in various quantities.
PNM at present serves nearly half a million customers, but with the current additions and more planned in the coming months, the company would be able to serve an extra 150,000 residential customers by the end of the year.
