FARMINGTON, N.M. — The city of Farmington and San Juan County have decided to intervene in the Public Service Company of New Mexico’s Integrated Resource Plan case.

The Farmington Daily Times reports both the City Council and the County Commission met Tuesday in closed executive session during their meetings to discuss intervening.

The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission is hearing arguments in the case. State legislators who represent San Juan County intervened in the case earlier this year.

The integrated resource plan calls for the Public Service Company of New Mexico pulling out of the San Juan Generating Station at the end of 2022 and being coal free by 2031.

The local governments are concerned about the economic impact the Public Service Company of New Mexico’s plan will have on the area.
