Farmington City Council approves plans needed to keep San Juan Generating Station


FARMINGTON, New Mexico — City councilors in Farmington have approved three agreements to keep open a coal-fired power plant that provides electricity to customers around the Southwest.

The Daily Times in Farmington reports (http://goo.gl/ziXpMM) that the agreements approved Tuesday establishes who will be the San Juan Generating Station's owners in 2018. It also establishes which agencies will be responsible for eventually taking the San Juan Mine.

The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission is expected to decide Wednesday whether to allow Public Service Co. of New Mexico more time to submit documents that would detail its plan to shutter two coal-fired units at the plant and retrofit the remaining two to meet new EPA emission standards.

The PRC is expected to decide soon whether to accept the PNM plan.
