ABSTRACT
The article informs that the state legislature of New Mexico by unanimous vote on March 16 passed House Bill 32, allowing $20 million in bonds for solar and energy efficient retrofits to state-owned buildings and schools. The measure is expected to save $46 million in utility costs over the 20-year life of the bonds, while generating $18 million in net revenue for new project investment, says Craig O'Hare, special assistant for renewable energy with New Mexico's Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Dept., the program's administrator.
