JOINT RESOLUTION ON RENEWABLE ENERGY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
In 2013, Renewable Taos created a Joint Resolution on the Development of Renewable Energy in Taos County and North Central New Mexico. The Joint Resolution (JR) commits Municipal, County and Pueblo governments, and other organizations of North Central New Mexico to plan and develop renewable energy to provide all our energy demands.
Renewable Taos members began presenting our JR at Village, Town, and County Council and Commission meetings and formal meetings of other organizations in late 2013. We asked all entities to review, change and accept the JR according to their legal protocols ahead of a formal vote. By November 2014, we had received unanimous and near-unanimous approval of our JR by the governments and organizations in the list below.
Our JR has served as a foundation of policy action towards a clean energy economy for our region. The JR expresses the political will of our local citizens and our political, business and non-government organization representatives to move quickly into a clean energy future.
