Got an opinion or a thought about how your electricity is generated? Concerned about the environment? Rising costs? Maybe both? Want more of a say in where your power comes from? Here's your chance to get involved.
Tonight marks the first of two meetings that PNM will hold in the Albuquerque metro area to kick off a year-long public-involvement process about how power will be generated in the future. Ten such meetings will be held throughout the state in the next few weeks.
Whether you're a small business owner, an activist or just an interested citizen, this is an important opportunity. Tonight's meeting will be held in Rio Rancho, but is open to everyone (5:30-7:30 p.m. at Loma Colorado Main Library, 755 Loma Colorado Drive, NE). The second meeting in ABQ metro will be held next Thursday, July 8, (5:30-7:30 p.m. APS HQ, John Milne Community Board Room, 6400 Uptown Blvd,. NE).
New Mexico First is facilitating. I'll be there. Hope to see you there! More info is available online
(For purposes of disclosure, I work for PNM and am part of this project. But I would probably attend even if it weren't part of my employment. It's a good opportunity to learn about how electricity is made and to discuss the tradeoffs associated with any kind of energy production).
