PRC To Host Special Open Meeting With Utilities To Discuss Resource Preparedness For Upcoming Peak Seasons


SANTA FE — The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission (PRC) will hold a special open meeting workshop at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22, with electric utility providers and other stakeholders, including members of the public, to determine resource preparedness in anticipation of upcoming energy demands.

This open meeting will be held at the CNM Workforce Training Center in Albuquerque and will be available to watch online.

Earlier this year, the PRC issued a Notice of Inquiry to electric utility providers regarding the adequacy of resource planning ahead of peak energy periods when consumer demand for electricity will be at its highest. The Commission is concerned that adverse weather and potential supply shortages could cause a delay in the completion of projects that are expected to provide additional energy resources during the summer in 2023 and 2024, when there might be an increased need for electric capacity.

An agenda for this meeting will be posted online.

Details about the meeting are as follows:

  • Where: Room 207, CNM Workforce Training Center, 5600 Eagle Rock Ave. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113
  • Information on how to watch online can be found here.
  • Public Comment: To sign up for public comment, email Please sign up for public comment no later than two hours before the start of the meeting.
