In Response to PRC Rejection of Arroyo & Jicarilla Solar and Battery Project in Partial Replacement of San Juan Coal Plant


“It is hard to fathom a PRC that within a week of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day would choose to reject some of the cheapest solar and battery projects in the country.  It’s worse that in McKinley County, where the Escalante coal-fired power plant is closing, workers can’t count on the 500 construction jobs that the Arroyo project would create. Commissioners Espinoza, Byrd and Becenti Aguilar have failed the climate, workers and New Mexico today. We are deeply, deeply disappointed.”  – Camilla Feibelman, director of the Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club
