Economic Development

New Mexico Gas Company is committed to making New Mexico a better place to live and do business, and natural gas is a driving force in expanding business opportunities and improving our quality of life. According to the American Gas Association, natural gas supplies almost a quarter of all energy consumed in the United States, making gas an important economic driver.

From 2016 to 2021, we supported to organizations across our state from a $5 million economic development fund to promote innovation and economic development around the state. The fund was fully paid for by our parent company, Emera. 

Although the Emera fund has been expended, we remain open to considering requests for community support. If you'd like to request funding, please Community & Government Relations Coordinator, Clair Anderson at (505) 252-4338 or via email,

The last awards from the Emera economic development fund were made in 2021. To see the organizations we were able to support from this fund, click below.
