Attorney and utility expert Germaine Chappelle returns to the Rio Grande Foundation’s Tipping Point New Mexico Podcast to discuss SB 489 the Energy Transition Act. This legislation just passed the New Mexico Senate (although it had not when we recorded earlier in the week) and it would mandate 50% of all electricity generated in New Mexico be “renewable.” The bill would also shut down the San Juan Generating Station in the Four Corners area.
Chappelle has spent decades working on utility regulation issues and shares some of her in-depth knowledge of the issue and how it will impact New Mexicans at large and those in the Four Corners who would be most impacted.

Upon completion of the world largest post combustion CO2 capture plant – Petra Nova Project – MHIEng has demonstrated that commercial-scale CO2 capture plant is technically feasible. With the updated technology and lessons learned, the Advanced KM CDR Process has been developed, providing superior performance as usual but with a significantly lower capital cost. The cost reduction is contributed by the reduced size of the flue gas quencher and CO2 absorber, reduced design redundancy, and the modular design.
