INVENERGY SPONSORS NEW MEXICO AGRICULTURE IN THE CLASSROOM
Source: New Mexico Agriculture in the Classroom news release

Las Cruces, N.M. - The New Mexico Farm & Livestock Bureau Foundation (NMF&LBF) announced today that Invenergy, the leading privately held developer, owner, and operator of sustainable energy solutions has generously donated $20,000 to support New Mexico Agriculture in the Classroom (NMAITC). Invenergy joins NMAITC's top-tier Platinum Apple sponsors, and their donation will allow NMAITC to increase the number of free educational presentations and workshops for Pre-K-12th grade New Mexico teachers to grow their students' awareness of agriculture.

"We thank Invenergy for its tremendous support as a new sponsor of NMAITC," said Elizabeth Foster, CEO of the New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau and secretary/treasurer of the New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau Foundation. "Invenergy's support will allow us to continue the expansion of our agricultural literacy initiatives throughout New Mexico, helping to ensure a greater understanding of agriculture. We are grateful for their commitment."

Invenergy, in partnership with the New Mexico Renewable Energy Transmission Authority (NMRETA), will develop New Mexico North Path (North Path), a direct current (DC) electric transmission line that will deliver up to 4,000 megawatts of clean domestically produced energy from northeastern New Mexico to the Four Corners region, helping power New Mexico and other western states. Invenergy's prior work in New Mexico includes development of the Sagamore Wind Project, one of the largest wind energy facilities in the state.

"We're proud to support the great work of New Mexico Agriculture in the Classroom," said Will Consuegra, Director of Transmission Development at Invenergy. "Across America, Invenergy intentionally partners with organizations who are improving the communities where we work and live. We are thrilled to champion NMAITC's mission to grow agriculture education and we look forward to this partnership creating long-lasting benefits for all New Mexicans."
