New Mexico finally establishes alternative fuel corridors

New Mexico

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico officials have announced that the Federal Highway Administration has designated the state’s first alternative fuel corridors.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports the state’s Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department said the federal agency designated New Mexico’s first alternative fuel corridors after years of not participating in the program.

New Mexico was one of just four states not yet participating in a program that helps federal, state and local governments and private companies plan and build an interstate network of alternative fuel stations.  

Federal designations exist for electric, hydrogen, propane, and natural gas stations, with different criteria for each fuel.
