Landlord Standby Program

Landlord Standby is a contractual agreement between PNM and a landlord.

Under the agreement, when a tenant moves out of a rental property and requests that service be taken out of his or her name, PNM will:

  • Provide a final bill to the tenant.
  • Continue to provide service under the landlord's name.


  • Service will remain on, even when the rental property is unoccupied.
  • No need to call when a tenant moves out.
  • No transfer fees so long as the service goes straight from the tenant's name to yours.
  • Landlord Standby is free.
