San Juan Generating Plant

Here’s footage of PNM’s power plant New Energy Economy wants to shut down and convert to purely solar power. The camera goes inside the control and turbine rooms of the San Juan Generating Plant, as well as getting close-ups of the steam and other emissions coming from the stacks. After our report that New Energy Economy was misleading the public in its billboards by showing smokestacks not belonging to PNM’s plant, we noted that an advocacy ad in the Sunday Albuquerque Journal used an actual photo of PNM’s plant. But the photo was darkened to make PNM’s plant ominous and threatening. This footage appears to be untouched. This plant provide electricity to 2 million customers and has undergone $320 million in pollution control upgrades.
