Governor Reveals New Mexico Climate Investment Center ALBUQUERQUE — Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced a new climate initiative to work towards reducing the impacts of climate change on New Mexico. The initiative includes the creation of the New Mexico Climate Investment Center, which aims to facilitate collaboration between federal agencies, state organizations, companies, and communities. The center will provide low-interest loans and other types of financing to drive renewable energy adoption in typically underserved communities.
The New Mexico Climate Investment Center is expected to bring between $50 and $70 million in initial state and federal funding to climate-related projects. The center's focus will be on addressing the challenges posed by climate change and working towards the state's clean energy goals. Gov. Lujan Grisham firmly supports the new investment center and believes it will play a crucial role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning to a more sustainable future.
One of the key objectives of the New Mexico Climate Investment Center is to ensure that communities most affected by climate change have access to funding and resources to implement renewable energy solutions. By providing low-interest loans, the center aims to make clean energy more affordable and accessible for individuals and businesses in these communities. This approach will not only help reduce greenhouse gas emissions but also create job opportunities and stimulate economic growth.
