NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING AND RULEMAKING

  

The State of New Mexico, Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department (EMNRD) hereby gives notice of the following proposed rulemaking. EMNRD proposes to repeal 3.3.14 NMAC, New Solar Market Development Income Tax Credit, filed 8/25/2020, and replace it with a new rule, 3.3.14 NMAC, New Solar Market Development Income Tax Credit.

Purpose of Rules. In 2024, the Legislature passed the amendments to the New Solar Market Development Tax Credit, which is established in the Income Tax Act. The amendments to the act require EMNRD to repeal the rule and develop a new rule that is compliant with the amendments in the legislation.

3.3.14 NMAC, New Solar Market Development Tax Credit, increases the annual aggregate amounts of the state tax credit available to applicants owning certified solar energy systems from $12,000,000 to $30,000,000 per calendar year. In addition, a single appropriation of $20,000,000 is provided to applicants in calendar years 2020 through 2023 who, while otherwise eligible, did not receive a certificate for a tax credit because the cap had been exceeded in the applicable year. EMNRD also proposes amendments to the application requirements meant to simplify and streamline the process for both applicants and EMNRD.

Legal Authority. EMNRD proposes the rules under the authority of the Income Tax Act, NMSA 1978, Section 7-2-18.31.

The full text of the proposed rules is available from the EMNRD, Energy Conservation and Management Division, 1220 S.
