New Mexico's Public Regulation Commission heard testimony for the 10th day on Friday about how the state’s largest utility wants to move forward. Two of the coal-burning units at the San Juan Generating Station are going to be shut down. Now the PRC hearings will be extended.
Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly addressed New Mexico’s Public Regulation Commission Monday on the first day of two weeks of hearings on PNM's energy replacement plan.
Shelly told commissioners he supports PNM’s plan for replacing energy that will be lost when two coal-fired stacks at the San Juan Generating Station are shut down. He said the plan would ensure good jobs for tribal members.
Voters throughout New Mexico will see three Constitutional Amendments about the state Public Regulation Commission, or PRC, on the ballot in this year's election.
The three amendments dealing with reform of the PRC are printed far down on the ballot. The state agency is a five-member panel that regulates utilities, transmission and pipeline firms, transportation and insurance companies.
