Generating Capacity (MW)

Four Corners

Fruitland, NM



PNM customers have benefited from the affordability and dependability of coal generation for many decades, primarily from the San Juan Generating Station near Farmington, New Mexico. 

In 2017, our integrated resource plan (IRP) showed that removing coal from our energy mix would provide a long-term cost benefit to customers. PNM proposed drastically reducing coal power generation by retiring the San Juan Generating Station by the end of 2022 and completely removing coal from our generation mix by exiting the Four Corners Power Plan when our purchasing contracts with that facility end in 2031.
