On Wednesday, the New Mexico Supreme Court handed down a ruling which affirmed the left-wing “Energy Transition Act,” also known as New Mexico’s “Green New Steal,” wiping out countless jobs and resources.
The ruling was regarding New Mexico’s largest public utility, Public Service Co. of New Mexico (PNM), to apply the newly-enacted environmental legislation in order to close the San Juan Generating Station near Farmington.
The closing of the plant will kill 450 jobs, decrease revenue for local jurisdictions, and stop the generation of electricity for over 500,000 customers.
Michelle Lujan Grisham gleefully embraced the left-wing ruling by the Court, stating, “Today’s unambigious [sic] ruling by the Supreme Court underscores what we have said all along: the Energy Transition Act is the law of the land. I am grateful for the court’s quick and impartial action, and I look forward to continuing New Mexico’s push into a thriving clean energy future.”
As previously reported, and affirmed by this news, New Mexico’s Green New Steal will effectively kill good-paying energy jobs, cut off power plants that provide energy to thousands of New Mexicans, and leave countless people without a job to pay their bills.
“As supporters of the ETA celebrate today’s ruling, it only highlights the bait-and-switch scheme behind this disastrous law,” said Larry Behrens, western states director for the group, Power the Future. He also added, “New Mexicans were promised ratepayers would be protected by the PRC and yet supporters couldn’t wait to run to the Supreme Court when the PRC stood against their radical agenda. There is no doubt the ETA will cost thousands of jobs and raise electric rates on New Mexicans. It’s time supporters of the law were honest about their intentions.”
The Green New Steal looks to completely wipe out all fossil fuel production by the year 2050. The New Mexico Supreme Court is made up of four Democrats and one Republican.
