Chalk up another renewable energy investment in the Land of Enchantment (or Enlightenment, as Richardson would say):
Clovis, New Mexico, has landed a second biodiesel fuel plant.New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has announced that Dallas-based American Renewable Fuels will build a plant capable of producing 75 (M) million gallons of biodiesel fuel each year.He says the plant will help the United States end its reliance on foreign oil...
Up to 100 people are expected to be employed during construction.
The plant will hire 40 full-time employees when it goes into operation.
If you haven't had a chance yet, make sure you head over to America for Richardson and watch the Guv's performance at the Nevada forum yesterday. He did a great job (though I will admit, the whole crop of Democratic candidates is very strong) and he touched on this sort of thing by essentially saying:
"In New Mexico we've led the way because Governors actually do things."
