PNM Sky Blue®:
Renewable Energy for New Mexico
Solar is here!
We’ve added solar energy to PNM Sky Blue. Under the new PNM Sky Blue program, energy now comes from the New Mexico Wind Energy Center near Fort Sumner, New Mexico, and from approximately 22,000 new solar energy panels located in New Mexico.
The ratio of electricity generation will be about 85% wind and 15% solar.
As in the past, the program is completely voluntary and it has no contract or long-term commitment. There are two different options to choose from:
Option 1: Purchase 100 kilowatt hour "blocks" of electricity. Each PNM Sky Blue 100 kWh block is priced at $1.70 per month above your normal electricity cost.
- The maximum number of blocks you can purchase will be based on your usage. The number of blocks purchased can't exceed 90 percent of your minimum monthly usage from the previous 12 months. Don’t worry – we will make sure you don’t sign up for too many blocks.
- Your cost remains the same each month.
Example: A customer signing up for two 100 kWh blocks would pay an additional 3.40 per month.
Option 2: Purchase any percentage between 1% and 90% of your monthly electric usage. Each PNM Sky Blue kilowatt hour is priced at $0.017 per month above your normal electricity cost.
- Because your electricity usage varies each month, your PNM Sky Blue cost will vary monthly with your electric use.
Example: A customer using 600 kilowatt hours of electricity subscribing to 20% of their monthly usage would pay $2.04 per month (20% of 600 kWh = 120 kWh, multiplied by $0.017 = $2.04).
