[ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO] - Today, the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP) launched a humorous video about the benefits of electric vehicles, starring the famous New Mexico character “Lynette” played by Lauren Poole. “Lynette’s Albuquerque” channel has garnered more than 1 million views on YouTube.”

Watch the video here.

“Electric vehicles (EVs) are part of the foundation for New Mexico’s clean energy future,” said Tammy Fiebelkorn, New Mexico Representative for SWEEP. “EVs help reduce air pollution, save their owners hundreds of dollars annually in fuel and maintenance costs, and do not directly emit carbon pollution, which worsens climate change.”

The video release coincides with the introduction of The Electric Vehicle Income Tax Credit (SB2), a bipartisan bill sponsored by Republican Senator Pat Woods, Democratic Senator Bill Tallman, and Democratic Representative Jim Trujillo. The bill, which is a priority for Governor Lujan Grisham, would provide an income tax credit to make electric vehicles more affordable for New Mexico families, with a larger tax credit for lower-income households.

“SWEEP is delighted to work with Lynette who, in her own inimitable way, explains how accessible and affordable electric vehicles are for most New Mexicans,” Fiebelkorn said.

Stayed tuned for the next video in which Lynette shows you how to save big bucks by making your home or business more energy efficient.
