SANTA FE – Cash, public interest and, perhaps most importantly, political will – all will be needed as Santa Fe city and county continue to explore the possibility of a publicly owned electric utility, speakers at a recent forum on the subject said.
Former Santa Fe County Commissioner Paul Campos declared that Santa Fe “cannot sit back any longer and say, ‘Let’s let the big utilities make their decisions.'”
“They’ve made their decisions and I think now is the time to consider changes,” Campos said.
Campos was among the speakers at the discussion, held at the Scottish Rite Temple and hosted by the League of Women Voters of Santa Fe County, the Sierra Club and New Energy Economy.
