Richard Lass Confers with Local Energy Expert

Rick discussed renewable energy options with New Mexico energy expert and founder of Local Energy Mark Sardella today. The two have a history of working on community-based issues in Northern New Mexico.

Lass remarked, "I expect to be a very active voice for expanding our renewable energy standards as a Public Regulation Commission member. And long-standing relationships with nationally respected leaders like Mark Sardella will be an important part of that work."

Mark Sardella commented, "Rick is no stranger to the energy issues we face nationally and here in New Mexico particularly. He’s been swimming in these waters for a long time, and he’s well aware of the power he will have as a commissioner to affect positive change through a broad range of channels, including by educating and advocating right now, during his campaign."
