Here comes the sun

The Eastern New Mexico University Regents are set to again consider a solar power purchase agreement at 11 a.m. Thursday in the Regents Room in the ENMU Administration Building.

They tabled the issue Dec. 17 to get a third opinion on whether the agreement to lease land to a solar power company and buy all of the power for 20 years made business sense.

The upcoming meeting has been rescheduled from today.
