The final 2015 PNM Rate Case Hearings got underway on April 11 at the PRC Building in Santa Fe, and ended on April 29. Hearings were reopened in June to deal with Palo Verde Nuclear Plant cost issues. The Hearing Examiner submited her recommendations on Aug 4. She was highly critical of PNM's Rate Case proposal. The Commissioners finally voted 3 to 2 to approve a 2015 PNM Rate Case Final Order on September 28, 2016.  Rate Cases are VERY complicated. For detailed background info go to: 2014-Rate-Case.aspx​.​​​
