Make Las Cruces a renewable energy leader

As the second sunniest state in the country, New Mexico should be leading the way on solar energy. Yet, we lag behind states like Massachusetts and New Jersey. As the state's second largest city, Las Cruces can help make New Mexico a renewable energy leader.

We, the undersigned, support the City of Las Cruces setting a goal to get 25 percent of the city's electricity from solar energy by 2022, 50 percent from renewable energy by 2030, and 100 percent from renewable energy by 2050.
