PNM Proposes to Rapidly Raise Rates

If you are a PNM customer, look for a very recently mailed document, "To PNM Customers." According to The New Mexico Independent, June 9th, "The utility, which serves nearly 500,000 New Mexicans, has raised electric rates on some customers by 24 percent over three years, and filed a request last week for PRC approval of another 21.2 percent hike that would take effect in April 2011." Yet, according to the PNM mailer, it appears as if some of the proposed rate hikes on certain entities, such as "Large Service for Mining Customers" and "Mines," were "Cancelled."

The document is "required by the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission (PRC)." The commission will hear the case (No. 10-00086-UT). If you wish to participate in the case, send written comments to:

New Mexico Public Regulation Commission
ATTN: Records Division
PERA Building
1120 Paseo de Peralta
Santa Fe, NM 87501
Case No. 10-00086-UT (refer to the case number)

To become a party, send an original letter and five (5) copies of a "Motion for Leave to Intervene in conformity with NMAC on or before August 6, 2010."

Also, according to the PNM website, there are public meetings:
