Enviro-Marxists rejoice after Farmington fails to save San Juan Generating Station

“With a heavy heart,” the City of Farmington has decided to abandon its plans to salvage hundreds of jobs connected to the San Juan Generating Station (SJGS) by retrofitting the plant with carbon capture technology. 

The Albuquerque Journal reported, “The city announced its decision late Tuesday to end all efforts to acquire the plant from Public Service Company of New Mexico and other co-owners after an arbitration panel for transfer negotiations refused to block PNM and the other utilities from moving forward on decommissioning and demolition preparations. The city said the arbitration panel’s position struck a ‘catastrophic blow’ to the plant conversion effort, which Farmington has pursued for more than four years with private development partner Enchant Energy Corp.”

“Given PNM’s and the other co-owners’ actions to quickly dismantle SJGS, and the (arbitration) panel’s recent decision to allow them to do so, we have arrived at a point where those actions directly undermine the viability of successful implementation of the carbon capture project,” Farmington Mayor Nate Duckett wrote in a statement.

Farmington owns a five percent stake in SJGS, which closed on September 30, 2022. 

According to PNM, the Generating Station will begin to be demolished in the spring of 2023, expected to last two to three years. 

With the closure of the San Juan Generating Station, it has purged countless jobs, with only around 80 employees able to retire. “For the rest of the employees, though, they’re going to have to go find some other form of employment,” said plant manager Omni Warner. 

The AP reports, “El Paso Electric, a utility that serves customers in southern New Mexico, also is expecting a capacity gap next summer. Like PNM, El Paso Electric will have to buy power from other producers to ensure adequate capacity when customers crank up their air conditioners during the hottest of days.”

With the critical energy plant shuddered, utilities are being forced to raise their rates, such as PNM, which is requesting to raise rates due to the enviro-Marxist “Energy Transition Act,” the state’s version of the Green New Deal signed by Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham in 2019.

After the news of the San Juan Generating Station’s imminent demolition, radical environmentalists rejoiced. 

Mike Eisenfeld, the “energy and climate program manager” with the eco-left San Juan Citizens Alliance, said, “The city needs to reevaluate its perspective on energy development and focus on renewable energy to create jobs and improve the environment.”

  1. This is all much more than just ending the petro-dollar oil world order. This is the beginning of a NWO plan to use “carbon” as the measuring rod for controlling you and me with their new digital currency system of Environmental and Social Governance (ESG).

    We’re entering into a Communist Digital Currency system where they will use Environment and Social Governance to control every purchase and every digital dollar we spend. Known as “Carbon Accounting” and “ESG.”

    The Chinese Social Credit score system is being implemented into the West now. They want to roll out digital currencies over the next 3 years. Those who don’t bow down to their ESG rules will be cancelled by the despotic banking cabal.

  2. Another communist coup , they always mention renewable energy but it’s a lie as we’ve seen in Texas a couple of winters ago and Europe today. The real aim as mentioned in previous comments is total communist control of our lives. Jobs lost and human hardship don’t matter to these Bolshevik criminals. After all didn’t the dimwit Stansbury say that they should sell their sheep and wool, in other words “let them eat cake” well bugs in today’s communist jargon.

  3. Who is this Mike eisenfield guy… The energy and climate program manager… What is his degree and did he actually graduate from a school?… First of all he should know is that renewable energy is totally unreliable.. you need 700 times more land for windmills to do the same amount of energy that a fracking area will give… The mining for renewables is incredible…. And the increase of cost of energy for the poor is going to be astounding….. And of course don’t forget the destruction of birds and bats….

  4. This reminds me of the female CEO of some bunch pushing eliminating fossil fuels to switch to electric vehicles. When asked, on camera, where electricity comes from, she replied, “In the cities.” When asked how electricity is produced, she pointed to an electrical outlet and said, “In there.” Electricity is made using fossil fuels. The stupidity of these people is incredible. Worse are the idiots who vote for the criminals pushing us into communism. When the blackouts start, who will they blame? All of this has been an IQ /critical thinking test and the majority of Americans clearly have failed it. The coming year will be a nightmare. Remember who voted for it.

  5. Why the feigned shock? Most of us know you can’t usher in the NWO if people have cars, food, homes and such unnecessary things as that!🙄

    Nancy Tannenbaum offers an excellent perspective of what we all will be facing in the coming years.
