NM Clean Energy Award

New Mexico – The New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority says it will receive almost $1 million from federal stimulus funds to provide energy efficiency training.

The Mortgage Finance Authority announced the grant Friday and says the project is part of the $29 million in stimulus funds the U.S. Department of Energy is spending on clean energy.

The agency will use the funds to create a center in New Mexico that will teach workers weatherization and energy efficiency practices for homes.
