New Mexico will use its Recovery Act SEP funding to implement several energy efficiency and renewable energy programs in buildings and the transportation sector. The state aims to reduce petroleum consumption through various financial incentives to encourage the purchase of new fuel-efficient vehicles, the use of alternative fuels and bio-fuels, and investments in alternative fuel and bio-fuel infrastructure. The state will also direct Recovery Act SEP funding to increase building efficiency. The program includes initiatives to expand residential weatherization assistance to families above the low-income eligibility threshold for the Weatherization Assistance Program, public building energy efficiency retrofits, commercial building audits and renovations, combined heat and power projects in the industrial sector, and the adoption of energy codes. Both the building and transportation programs include provisions to educate citizens about energy issues and provide statewide training for professionals in order to reduce energy consumption across the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.
