I guess they need a holiday bonus! No more money for this company. Give me a break, my lights aren't brighter, lightning still shuts my power off! What are they going to do, make lightning proof wires.

How much are the executives going to get out of this rate hike? In the improvements to the system going to include new office furnature for the executives or maybe a vacation for them and their family. How much of the hike will go towards helping the people that will have to pay more on their bills. A rate hike with in reason is ok but the proposed rate hike is a bit much.

Were all supposed to beleive that PNM doesn't have any money to make capital improvements so they have to force their customers to pay for them.
It's disgraceful they can get away with this.
Why weren't these "much needed" improvements made a little at a time.
Mr. Darnell would say anything to defend PNM's decision.
He doesn't want to lose his job.

PNM get your act together. Their were plenty of profits leading up to this much needed capital improvement.
Don't make the sick, the poor and the elderly have to pay for your very poor planning.

I think that all of PNM's employees need repairs to their homes and vehicles or much needed capital improvements.

I think it's time PNM's employees start charging PNM
a minimum wage rate of $100.00 per hour.

Oops, that won't work will it. PNM would then just pass that cost onto us.

PNM early on signed on to the Cap and Trade crap. They are in the hip pockets of Obama and his band of crooks. The utility is raising its rates to get ready for the cap and trade carbon credits it will be paying to the crooked Chicago trade outfit that will make Gore, Obama, and many others filthy rich.

It's all a scam.
